      Hi @wiseowl , depends where you had them from. If you bought them from a shop I would pot them up and keep them in the greenhouse as they would have got used to the warmth. However, suppliers such as Parkers dig them from fields so they are perfectly hardened off and should be planted out in their perrmanent postion. If in doubt ring your supplier.

        Thank you @KFF I could have contacted the supplier but I thought I would ask the question on here as many of our learned friends have the answers that I require;):smile:

            Ordered some shelf brackets for the greenhouse today, desperate for more space.

              @mazambo I could definitely make use of more greenhouse space, do you mind me asking where you got them from?
              Nevermind, hubby has just looked on amazon. I always thought they where much more expensive, thanks anyway :)

                  4 litre pots have just arrived, bought a lot more than I needed, one of those things I always seem to talk myself into, 2 for £5 would have done me, but 10 for £7.50 seemed a better bargain, then 20 for £10.50 seemed an even better bargain, anyone else do this? At least I can repot my agapanthus now.

                      Yep mazambo, my “style” too ....but you have plenty of pots now and you will prob use them all :)
                      Once bought 50 x 5 and 10 litre pots cheaply from a friend who ran a small nursery. All regularly put to good use :)

                        Not as eye catching as some other posts in here but, after much umming and ahing and I ordered some potato fertiliser from eBay. If you told me a decade ago that I'd be spending the last few months of my 20s excited by potato fertiliser arriving in the post...

                        Now, if the weather can just calm itself down a bit, I can get started!

                          A couple of books and a cloche, the cloche was only a £1 from poundland :heehee: so probably won't last long, also bought some fibre pots from wilko 24- 6cm for a £1, then saw 84- 6cm for the same price in poundland :doh:
