They need a strong trellis or support, this one has been in for 4 years this year, its cut back every Spring

No, dont cut the leaves off Marc, just pot on and wait a bit to plant out, they sound lovely plants and will flower this year. If its a perennial Lobelia, it won't be frost hardy for a long while, you may lose them in the winter, I dug mine up and brought them in. 

Beware of slugs, they love all those plants you have mentioned, if you can get them a good size before they go out they will stand a better chance, although the Lobelia will always get chewed however big it gets.

Haven't seen any bees. Last night was 2c and today was even colder, forecast said feels like - 2c.

Definitely not early summer here, still in mid winter.

My OH says that the NHS has had it!

He reckons it should be privatized, not being politically minded so I don't know, but I do know that I had to ask for help two and a half weeks ago, they still haven't put a care package, as they call it, in place.

Thank goodness for the Hospice crisis team, they have come in to help for 5 days, but cannot do it any more as I am really only entitled to 72 hours.

Never had white fly in there, do get a few green fly, but being vigilant, I squash them as soon as I see them.

Will They Survive?

Should they be romping away at this time of the year?  I am sure once they have settled they will shoot out and be fine.

Take a photo in a months time and send it to Parkers in an email, they will always act, I have been buying their bargains for 4 years now, never let down.

About one inch from the bottom leaves Gemma, then the same each time you pot on until they are ready to go out on in big pots, they make roots all the way up the stems making a nice strong plant. Dont be tempted to pot on too quick, only when their roots fill the pot they are already in.
