I have 2 coldframes which were homemade- I wouldn't be without them. I agree with MMP, the amount of plants you are grow in them is amazing, all of my plants are grown in them. The delphs in the pictures are in one of the frames- just for protection as they were getting a bit eaten by slugs left out.
I share Green Magpies views on planting them out. I think I will probably end up over wintering the Geums, Lavenders and the one surviving Echnichea as they are still small and not showing any signs of being pot bound yet. The Foxgloves were ready to go in and I think my Delphs will be in the Autumn.
When you plant them out depends on how the plant is performing, if it has a good established root system and good growth then I think it's best to get them in the ground.
