I know what you mean, they will plant them out and then buy some more when they are killed by frosts.That way the major outlets can sell some more. 

I remember the spring was warm and then it started raining

aldi easter monday.

I've bought the discounted  bedding plants from Aldi, at first the price was 10 plants/tray for £1.29 on friday, got 2 trays then (lobelias & violas) and yesterday 79p for a tray, picked up a couple of trays of lobelias.

Tucked up in my coldframes, will be there for a while yet before they even get potted on.

Stupid no............cynical, yes, but at 8p a plant worth a go

Crocus mowing

I would leave them be for a while, as from what i've learnt the foilage feeds the bulbs for next year, same as daffs etc.

no history at all now

I know what you mean Alan, I don't do the email notification thing (tho that's not working either). There is a way of searching on google as well as on here, but can't remember exactly how do it as I can't find the thread/post that told me how to do it.

Hardening off flower seedlings in plastic greenhouse

Think you doing the right thing re hardening them off slowly. I have seen quite a few seedlings outside in my cold frames, but they are in a very sheltered spot and have been outside before this very cold weather.

good effect of a wet summer

looks like that a nice plant, is a woodland one?

I agree.

Viola - Plant or Not to Plant?

Posted: 30/03/2013 at 22:56

They will be fine outside, like Dove, mine have been out all winter and still flowering, would have more if I remembered to keep deadheading.

Good idea to harden them off first for a couple of days

Aldi garden stuff

Aldis today were selling off their bedding plants, needless to say I have now bought more lobelia. 79p for a tray of 10 plants

Too cold to relocate perennials?

The little Lupins and Aquilegia look none the worse despite the snow and hard frosts. The crocus are still trying, if the sun shone for a day I might get to see them open
