If they are plugs now, you are best not putting them in the ground till Spring, firstly because as small plants they will just get eaten by slugs, and they wont survive the winter.

Pot them up and keep in a frost free green house, or a cold frame with a couple of slug pellets. Just a couple does, you wont need a lot.

Problem viewing on Android tablet

Have you kept your updates going. I find the android tablet a pain in the bum.

I cant see what I am typing, the box is down behind the keyboard, one slight touch on something and you lose your comment, no private messages,terribly slow,  the ony good thing about is no booting up.

Its easy to take a pic and post in one go without having to load onto computer.

Wish list for seed and plant swap

I have just read this about sowing the Aconitum seed

SOWING ADVICE: FOR BEST RESULTS, SOW SEEDS AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THEM IN A COOL PLACE ONTO A GOOD SOIL-BASED COMPOST. COVER THE SEEDS WITH FINE GRIT OR COMPOST TO APPROXIMATELY THEIR OWN DEPTH. THESE SEEDS CAN BE VERY SLOW INDEED TO GERMINATE, AND AS A RULE THEY WAIT FOR SPRING BEFORE EMERGING WHENEVER THEY ARE SOWN. PLEASE BE VERY PATIENT, AND DO NOT DISCARD THE SEED PAN, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES FOR GERMINATION TO OCCUR.

Yes! take it all out and put in the grave or the soil will just block up the holes.

You didnt think you were going to get away with it that easy, all dug and done in a day
