Thanks Jess. They had not started to germinate and the temp. was only that high for a short time.Jess wrote:Hi Roxanne
They should be fine as long as they had not started to germinate. The only thing that would have killed them then is if the pots had dried out completely and the sprouting shoot had dried out.
I would continue to look after them for at least another week. If then you see no signs of life you will know they were cooked!

The heat shouldn't have been a problem but, if left at high temperatures for long period of time the proteins in the cells can denature (change shape) which can kill the plants.[/quote
