will need to protect last two in ground. 

The three planted in grow bag will put them indoors for now. 

We had some good sun last week lots of warm days when i planted out and this week its grey and miserable.

 And there lies the problem, too much fluctuation in temperature. You need to bring them at least another 30cms away from the wall.

I don't know the correct times for moving anything, I just move them when I want too, providing they are of a manageable size,  as long as the ground is wet or you give a bucket full of water, they should be fine.

Mulch and ground cover prevents evaporation. It works. 

I never water my garden except for new plantings. I choose perennials suitable for the soil I have rather than water hungry annuals/dahlias etc

See original post

 on my dad's advice, I don't either. 

I have dustbins and butts for rain on every available downpipe.

Too cold to plant outside yet, and definitely not big enough, if you try again, put them 18 inches out from the wall.
