But I have seen a worm 3' long with a zig zag on its back and it was quite scary.

I uncovered plants,,including dahlias, that have been over overwintering  under polythene. wont be too cold here tonight and I feel it helps harden them off a little more,quickly. Will watch the weather over next couple of weeks though.  Everything is moving though.

It's the sort of thing I would do...........

Bare roots perennials - can I put them straight in the border?

No, never plant out bare roots if small...and they usually are these days.....straight into the garden.  Potted up they will grow faster and do better.   after a few weeks they will romp in warmer soil.  No brainier for me.

Dave, I was more concerned about the drainage.......water may lodge or run into that concrete ledge. It could be great or not so good.  And they are unlikely to survive as long as mine.....I.e. At least 10 years.

You will need 60 cm I reckon but how deep is your soil there?  Can you make a raised bed there?  Maybe a row of blocks or sleepers to raise soil level?
