The heat in the shops of the ones in aldi wilkinsons tend to force them into growth a bit so have a good look at which ones you choose.

Sowing flowers from seed

No the sweet peas will be hardy enough to go outside now mine are in a unheated mini greenhouse its just they wont germinate without a little heat if they put straight outside this time of year. As soon as they germinate I put them outside as they get leggy otherwise indoors.

yeah its my first year storing tubers now I just have them in buckets in the loft. Our loft is cold in the winter as its ventilated for the trusses in it but doesn't get frosty. So hopefully pretty much ideal storage conditions. The tubers I have at the minute are from ones I have grown from seed. That's one thing I would say If anyone hasn't grow dahlias from seed they are the easiest things I have ever grown and perform really well first year. Thanks for the replys ill have a pop down my local gardening centre.
