Yes, don't move them into the shade ... it's just that if they're in a greenhouse or conservatory sometimes the temperatures can get very high and the greenhouse can need shading. 

If they're outside they should be fine.

Good morning everyone 

I had the best night's sleep since 'The Fall' ..... no waking OH for escorted hops to the loo until 6am  

Now I'm dressed and have been placed on the sofa surrounded by a tray with yoghurt, banana and coffee, a bottle of water, book, Bing Bong, hand wipes, phones etc and R3 is on ... everything a girl needs, and OH has gone to work. 

A friend is coming to see me this morning ... she said she's bringing lunch and will pot my tomatoes on for me 

Hosta   as I too am over 27 I'm ignoring the bally lot of 'em ... I know which way I'm going to vote, I know our candidate and he's a good one so I'm not changing my vote now.  I think the way the public respond to politicians is changing and the pollsters and pundits are flummoxed.  I listen to the Today programme in the mornings, and the news bulletins on R3, read a few articles in the Independent and that's enough politics for me ... my blood pressure can't take any more.  

More important is working out how I'm going to get to the Polling Station, as it's too late to apply for a postal vote ... I may ask a neighbour or I may ring the local office of the party I support and they can come and fetch me ... I've not missed an opportunity to vote since I was 18, don't want this one to be the first time ... 

and as for Spongebob Squarepants over there ........ words fail me!   Homer Simpson would make a better job of being POTUS

It's often a reaction to high temperatures and prevents too much transpiration from the leaves. Can you shade them on bright sunny days?
