Stagbeetle good you got some stuff dug, nice you had a picnic up the allotment,  did they all enjoy the plot?  

Think it is good to have a nursery bed where you can grow plants on before they go in to there proper planting area, that is what I will have   

Zoomer44 nice to see other allotmenteer's

Fruitcake is that the clay soil

I have a Abutilon Canary Bird  - yellow one out side in a sheltered corner west facing which seem fine out in the winter been out there now thought last winter and this winter does get part sun not full sun flowers nicely, it is planted in the ground

So I would plant it out as long as it will have shelter and a bit of sun   

hope this helps
