Hi I have two seedling plants I grew from seeds in my cold greenhouse, When can I plant them out and will they be frost hardy? I live in Durham and we have some very cold weather here. I grew mine from seed last year and I think I planted them out
the seller and sent them a photo. They think it's probably frost damage - I suspect that it's actually a combination of frost and cold/dry north-east wind. I'm hoping it recovers...
My hydrangea leaves look going to be brown and dry. Why the new flower heads dead? Has it been caught by frost? Alternatively, is it too dry? Hydrangeas like damp soil. It looks a mature one, it comes with my new house. I don't think I need do
frost (down to about -10 deg C) Half-Hardy - will need some sort of protection (greehouse, horticultural fleece etc) for anything below freezing Tender - needs to be brought indoors if frost forecast Perennial - Plant that comes up each year - either

A plant that will tolerate cooler temperatures. Half-hardy plants may be grown outdoors in summer, but won't survive frosts. Half-hardy shrubs and herbaceous plants may survive an average winter in sheltered or warm environments.
can i take cutins of my carnations which i growed from seeds this year and will they over winter in my greenhouse Yes, as long as you keep them frost free. I do it with carnations and pinks every year
and keep on reading how now is the time to be digging up the tubers and digging up tender perennials to bring inside. When do you tend to bring them in (I live in London). Dahlias will flower up to the first frosts-they do not need lifting until then A lot
