Hi all    i have about 30, 8 inch Hydrangea cuttings all  doing very well in my garage well lit and above freezing as advised, now can i put them into the big pots i have ready for them for their  first year and keep them in the garage till say this  march then position them in the garden or is it too soon to disturb them at all and wait a bit

Well Lazy gardener if you read my original post i just wished the old man good luck for his retirement and that was all,, at 85 i think  he deserves a rest,i made No comments on religion nor will i except i remember i was sent to Sunday school untill i was 13 never missed,and yet my mum and dad now gone were not even religious and it wasnt untill mum was very ill that in a conversation i actualy asked her why i was sent to Sunday school ?she smiled at me and said "when you and your brother and sister went to Sunday school that was the only time your dad and i had to ourselves ""i smile even today when i think about mum and dads sunday afternoons, and you wish i hadnt brought this up ,,i didnt did i,  the very first reply did ,mycomments were all in good taste and best wishes for a fellow human and im told he was a very keen gardener   Good luck all
