Advice on planting out please!

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 17:47

I'll bring a couple of pots of chives in and see how they do, but I think they might be a bit too small, although they may prefer conditions inside and as I've got loads of pots of them it's worth a try.

Thanks Verdun, Hellebores are in pots of 5 and 6 inch diameter and are reasonably large plants, grown on from plugs in spring.

I've got some small pots of chives and delphiniums grown from seed in my greenhouse together with a couple of clematis from the GW offer earlier in the year. Should I plant these out now or pot them on and overwinter in the greenhouse for planting out next spring. I've also got a few hellebores which I presume can go out now as they're winter flowering. 

Any advice gratefully received

Fairly inexperienced but the plants I really love so far are: Peony's, poppies -oriental and standard, lavender, hostas, hellebores, magnolia, roses, Japanese annenomies, aliums and agapanthus!

Thanks Dave & Cris. Some great info on dahlias on the site as you said Dave, and having read a few of the articles etc, I've pinched out the growing tips on all the sprouts to encourage bushyness, but there's nothing that tells me if cutting off the leggy shoots will mean no further shoots from the eye, I don't want a leggy sad looking dahlia in the garden but it's better than no dahlia at all!
