It so pays to shop around. Perhaps you dont have a local garden centre, there you can see what you are buying.

My dahlias are still flowering, i had to dig most of them up. To get ground mulched.

Picked last of the second blooming of delphs for indoor vase. Lots of things still going and the baskets in the conservatory are still very good,

What's this fatty?

Winter pansies

If you buy on line and they are sold as plugs, they will be to small to plant out now, but you can pot them up, keep in a cold greenhouse or cold frame and plant out early Spring. If you want to plant out now, the supermarkets have some 

In 3/4 inch pots, those can go out now.
