I live about 5 miles from their site in Cornwall.  Had sale plants and ordered certain varieties.  Just google for varieties.  You need to request what you want and they will be delivered in spring

No worries about arachnaphobia but I dont like spiders 

outdoors they're fine but not indoors...then I have to get rid.  Not easy when you don't want to kill them but want to get them outside.  Rather than leave them inside I will hand catch them, hating every second of them moving in my cupped hands

Hiya Jo

I would use fleece.  Its great stuff to use where its dry so inside a cold frame would be effective.  Plants still need light during winter so cover and remove as temps dictate

Mornjng Teenrbee,

yes Your new plugs will be just fine in the greenhouse.

check your older perennials are can tell us what you have...but if they are in 5" pots now they should be fine outside.  I would though cover with fleece during the coldest part of winter.
