    In the outhouse window, quite chilly but rarely freezes, if forecast was for proper below freezing weather (snow and ice kinda weather) I'd bring them in and onto the unheated spare bedroom window-ledge.
    They need to be cool, but not frozen, and in the light

    I have a stonebuilt shed (which is so full of stuff that I can barely see the floor) but they're on a table by the window in there. Charlotte, Desiree and PFA on the go today :-)

    Mine go on the east facing windowsills,they get the least amount of sunshine here. I always leave a space for my cat to jump up & show him (introduce them!) so there’s never a problem with him touching them or jumping on them or anything.

    Mine go n a low level cardboard box I get from Aldi I think it’s the one lettuce comes in, and this is sitting on the back of my ride on in the garage, there is light from the window and also the door window, has worked perfectly for me for years.

    I put mine on the east facing windowsill and shelf in my utility room, which is the coolest place in the house.

    Windowsills that don't have a radiator right underneath. I'm always worries a radiator will dry them out.
