Morning glory

My morning glory seedlings are getting a bit too adventurous and grabbing hold of anything nearby
Can I plant them out yet? Sheltered south facing spot.
In London. Keen but lazy.

    I'm in the same boat and am planting half of them (the tallest) out tomorrow.  I think they'll survive as long as it doesn't drop below 5C and my local forecasts seem ok for the next fortnight.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Mine are probably going out when this wind drops. They’re going in a container on the terrace so if we get another cold snap with the aid of OH we could move them into the studio if we had to.  But I don’t think that’s going to happen ... 🤔

    Good point about the wind @Dovefromabove - just checked and strong winds here again tomorrow so will wait 'til Sunday.  Trying to gently tie them to supports in 40mph winds can only end one way! ;)

    Mine have been out since the weather changed to sunshine on Monday. Doing fine. This wind is a nightmare though, snapping and breaking things everywhere.
