wish i'd done mine in september too but im all new to this gardening since i got my first house so i just went by what the label said. I'll be placing the pots outside the front of my house as that is south and my rear garden is north. any tips on how to prevent any thieves stealing my pots? hopefully that wouldnt happen but you can never be too careful.

thanks for the replys, i will get them outside. yes i was planning to pot those into the blue pots. they were on offer at dobbies £2.50 for the pots.

sotongeoff the seedlings are ok, i had 4 out of 24 germinate so far, 1 failed and the rest are ok. very small as you can see in the pic. Anything i can do to speed them up?

cheers

Hi i got myself some plants today. the salesperson said they are hardy now and can go outside,, however would i be better placed to grow them on a windowsill for the time being? also do you think the pots i bought should be of sufficent size when there full grown?

thanks
