You are correct DAN, that was my assumption.  Sorry 

why not leave some outside but protect the rest, at least with fleece?  

Agapanthus vary in their hardyness

I have a feeling the americans will make the most of opportunities Trump may create.

we here have an opportunity to make brexit work very well for us IF the "elite" remoaners stop talking us down. 

i too voted for brexit....doubted we would get it but delighted we have the chance now to prosper.  Down here there is an air of optimism and the last thing we need to hear are the theoretical negatives

I think you will be offered bare root geraniums.  Some grow, some do not.  Very few will make anythimg until spring 2018.

go for named varieties of potted geraniums instead.  They will definitely give you flowers next year.

geraniums often make large spreading plants so you will not need lots of them.  Online the choice is excellent

anyway, so much for my cautions 

they can go into that way anyway.
