Can I plant these out now?

Andy, how big are these plants?  If they are small there is no advantage to planting out now.

Spring sowing will be much more successful chobfnart.  

I know I drone on about leatherjackets but they are one of the main causes of lawn destruction, including newly sown. 

Resow and feed in spring

Beautiful day here.  Warm sunshine. No wind. Dry.  

Hazel, a light trim for now.  Hard in spring.  Your honeysuckle is likely to be damaged if you hard prune now despite the fact it is a hardy plant.

There will be flowers Nut but less than usual I think.  Perhaps usual late spring stuff will flower earlier; ditto summer flower 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Punkdoc, a conciliatory letter to your neighbours....."find a way to co exist"..???   There are times when, although it goes against the grain, I decide to make the peace.  Any chance with your neighbours?

LeifUK, I have cannas still flowering with new buds opening. loads of camelias,azaleas, rhodos about to flower. 

the new year flower count shows we all have as much flowering now as in summer.  The first frosts will change all that and make for a less colourful spring

A very scary development too.  

Atheist/agnostic Edd? At least we are honest and realistic 

What a "civilised" world we live in.........families starving in Syria because both government and rebels are beseiging towns.  Assad could be a hero if he allowed food in....??? 

When do bay trees grow?

Just leave them Emily.  Wait until spring.  Whatever you do now willl not change anything.  

Reminds me of the infamous dead parrot sketch on monty python though
