Advice Sought

I am moving home in March and having just bought some autumn bedding plants, I wonder if it would be best to put them straight into terracota pots rather than in the ground as I will be taking some plants with me, and we can get bad weather end Feb/March.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

    If these are just pansies and primulas I would leave then behind as there will be lots of nice stuff coming on in the garden centres by then.

  • No there is euphobia, michaelmas daisies, crocosmia, anemone.

    In that case I'd put them in pots. Otherwise you'll never be ble to find them by March .

    Yes, pot them now.  Keep in a sheltered position by the house wall. If it gets really cold, you could put them in the garage, or a shed while they are dormant.

    I agree, you'll have plenty to do without digging up plants in February. Anyway if you intend to dig plants up you will have to make a list and tell the buyer of your house.  If they are in pots you can just take them with you.
