Chilli thread here 

but to save time - no, don't put them outside yet - I'd wait until June

Shame you haven't got any chickens - they'd love those!  But blackbirds and starlings love them - encourage the birds - they keep the blighters under control here - so far!!!

Complete beginner - confused

Welcome JDDB 

I agree with everything Hostafan has said 

Added to that, don't worry about the clematis - it's probably growing more roots!  There's a lot goes on that we don't see, but you'll see the results later 

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.  Show us some photos (we love looking at other people's plants) and pop in for a chat on Hello Forkers (if you're not too busy gardening).

That's what has been done before when something has been required to be easily visible for a while - we keep bumping the Help for Flooded Gardens threads up 

ID - Apple tree

Lots more information needed - this website might help you 

Also you'll need to wait a bit until the blossom is out fully so you can see the colour etc. 

Another avenue for you - the keepers of the National Fruit Collection at Brogdale have a Fruit ID service - details here

or you can keep your eyes peeled  for one of the several Apple Identification Days held at County and Horticultural Shows and Events throughout the autumn - good luck
