I'd keep them out in a normal place til about November, then move them out the worst of the wet then - under the veg planter sounds a good idea. I would not put them in a shed, as they will want some light.

Would be nice to see Saints do well again this season, but they don't seem to have any players left.  OH tells me it is all part of the grand plan

Brilliant border Panda - just how I like them  Is that salvia hotlips making such a fantastic clump?  Love the echinaceas too - plus the rose is really going for it up your arch.  Bet you are chuffed to bits

LOVE the general Bob - and two flushes of flowers too - what a stunner.  Well done on your dahlia - the slugs had all mine

Oooh well done Ggirl...... waiting anxiously for pics here

Have a great night out Dove and a fab picnic tomorrow.

Panda, you have reminded me its time to weed my patio too - how do plants always find their way in those tiny cracks.  Thought of you today as I was having my toes "pimped"

Bought a deep blue hydrangea called Zorro as a tq for lovely NNB - she too is plagued by deer, but they leave the macrophyllia ones alone.  Managed to resist all other temptations (apart from crunchie ice cream).  

Feet up with a cuppa now..... ahhhhhhhhhhh
