I would say as long as they are hardened off, planting them out shouldn't be a problem. Some growers sow outside in Autumn.

I sowed a lot of annuals last year to get a fast and quick show. It worked, the garden was full. It's the perfect time to sow them too. Things like candytuff are brilliant for filling in gaps, good for insects and can self seed if you leave them over winter. Cosmos are quick easy and full of flowers

I think perennials take longer to germinate, you've got a few up so there should be more. Plant propgation has taught me patience but the time seems to go quick. It's always about next year...........I'm already thinking of sprinkling fox glove seeds into shady places for next Spring!

I think we are going to be here a while. The garden is small, the traditional long terrace shape. I'm going to run out of space so some climbers will give me some more privacy as well as more growing room.

Gardens can be grown anywhere and I think I'm always going to be a girl! Good to meet you aym

I'm a girl How about you?

The jackmanii was bought a few years ago for my first garden it's survived a couple of moves and it looks happy where it is now. I thought I'd killed it last year by pinching it out, but there are some green shoots starting on the lower bits so I it looks like I got away with it.

I like how our plants have stories and histories attached to them
