Foxglove seedlings

I have been growing some foxglove seedlings on my window sill. They are now quite big do I pot them on, it seems a bit cold to put them outside?

Christopher thank you for that some books call plants tender and others half hardy and I was getting so confused. I am trying to grow lilies but some seem hardy like day lilies but others like calla lilies are half hardy, is there an easy way to work out which is which?

Christopher thank you for explaining that I am new to gardening and still trying to work out the difference between text book advice and the wisdom of experienced gardeners. Could I trouble you for some more advice I still cannot work out the difference between tender perennials and half hardy perennials.

gardeningfanatic do you actually shoot to kill? This sounds very drastic to me, do you need a license? I think that we should respect all of gods creatures.

I am sorry but I am getting really confused and think I have messed up again my book said that day lilies were herbacous perennials so I thought that this means that they die back and that the leaves go brown and you need to remove them. Why do you need to remove them? Should they be evergreen and have I messed up by trimming them back. I need help

I have an amarylis that flowered last summer, it has produced lots of leaves this summer but no flowers. I know some people only grow them for Christmas but I am now confused. What do I do next?

Thanks in advance.
