big plants or little

A 3 litre plant should be perfect for planting now. Perhaps a 5 litre if you can.  A 12 litre plant is a big no from me.

Well,,that's it.......will get trilliums to plant next to some hellebores.  Rich deep soil and I can create some shade.  Womder why those three leafed three petalled plants are called Trillium.  Any ideas folks ?

Fidget, I am jealous.  Want trilliums too but probably here it's too open and sunny.  Can provide some shade but not enough I think 

Frosts ?

Its not just frost.....very cold weather, biting wind, can wreak havoc with young plants.
