The world is white!  One of those hoar frosts here.  Hope all those new shoots i spotted yesterday aren't clobbered

I'd keep them in - treat them like seedlings.  They will be ok to be planted outside for good sometime this summer.  Your GH will be up and running long before they arrive

Tracey - i got these perennials last year.  They are teeny tiny (size of your fingernail) but mine all grew on into lovely plants. I will order again - don't want the geums or coreopsis, but someone in Somerset (flooded gardens) might.
