No it's not a dumb question. I put the winter-sown trees, shrubs, perennial and hardy annuals on the east side of the house out next to the shrubbery (which is towards the back yard and that's nice because the neighbors can't see them) and they get morning sun only. They are out in the weather.

The seeds I sow in the Spring, which are the annuals, veggies, daylilies, etc., are sown mostly in cups and flats and go on the south side of the house right next to the foundation. This is one of the warmest spots in the yard and doesn't get much frost in the Spring. Have to watch them more closely there as they will dry out faster.

The patio greenhouses can work wonderfully. I used them to get a head start on tomatoes, peppers and tender annual flowers. You need to be vigilant about opening the greenhouse when there is much sun/warm temps, since they can turn into an oven and cook seedlings, even when the weather is still relatively cool. It's useful to have a thermometer inside the greenhouse to keep track of temps.
