I would love some help identifying the plants in this lovely gift box I have been given.  Or at least whether it should be kept indoors or outdoors!  Hope the photo works.... thank you xx

    think the yellow buds opening at the bottom of pic are french or african marigolds. They will also survive in the garden until first frost.The buds on the right may also be marigolds but its hard to tell. Really nice gift box by the way!

    Not my sort of plants but I wonder if those buttony ones at the from could be chrysanths. Also not the hardy sort prob.

    You may be lucky with the cyclamen. Mum gave me a similar display years ago. I popped it into a raised east-facing shady bed close to the house and the red and pink cyclamen still come up every year

    Thank you everybody! I'm glad at least some of it will survive beyond first frost with a bit of care! Will do a bit of research to see if I can get seeds from the others. Thank you so much for your quick responses, it's hugely helpful.

    The little yellow buds at the bottom are spray chrysanths, you may be able to get cuttings from them then overwinter and plant out next Spring.

    usually those miniature roses have been forced on for sale purposes, I would treat it as a houseplant, then prune early Spring like any other rose. I have had one for 10 years, and it still blooms.

    you can keep the cyclamen going indoors, treat as a house plant.
