Can I plant young hardy plants out soon?

Posted: 17/03/2015 at 13:42

Hi Verdun, I will try my best to keep the potting on process going but will really struggle for room. Maybe it is time to invest in cloche. Here is a silly question: if I plant them in the ground with cloche protection, can I then dig them up to relocate them when weather warms up? Thanks

Hi Winniecat, there are so many...  I have got echinops, helenium, penstemon cuttings, Verbena B, scabiosa, companula, eryngium, Echinacea, monarda, agastache, thalictrum delavayi, sanguisorba, gaura, potentilla, knautia, sweet peas...

Inside the house, I have got all sorts which I sowed in Feb. Most of them have come through and are ready to be picked out. I keep putting that off as I will have no room for them and I don't like throwing away seedlings! And I still have about 40 different things to sow in April!! I really should have thought it through!

like the cat btw

Thank you very much for everyone that has replied, much appreciated!

I will try to keep them protected for a bit longer and have decided that it is time to invest in a new small greenhouse! a lean-to one. I have had my eyes on one on Greenfingers for a while now. I have considered cold frames, but it will need to be a massive one to help my overpopulated plants problem.

Hi Clarington, I am in West Yorkshire.

Can I plant young hardy plants out soon?

Hi

 Please can I have some guidance on this

My greenhouse (unheated) is full of young hardy plants which I bought last year as plug plants. A lot of them kept their leaves over the winter and have been growing at a steady rate. They now fill 7cm pots. Others have started to show top grow as well. My question is that if I start hardening them off now (keep door open during the day and close it at night?), will I be able to plant them out in the garden in a couple of weeks' time? I want to make some room for my (hundreds of) hardy seedlings which are kept inside the house at the moment.    

Thanks a lot for your reply in advance!

Hi gardening granny. Yes, it is schizostylis Major. it is supposed to flower into december. A very valuable plant which I will get more for next year. Oh, dear. My plant shopping list is not getting shorter!

haha Artjak. I bet they have some nice gardens though.

Thank you Lyn. Yes, i cann't wait for next summer. hopefully, i will have two new gardens (front and back!) bursting with flowers which I know I have looked after since the begining of their lives.  I will try to find room for them inside the house, but have got a funny feeling that i will run out of windowstills sooner rather than later.

the Rudbeckia indian summer is still going strong. Bugs like them a lot. I found two different types of ladybird resting on them, maybe they are looking for a suitable winter shelter?
