I hae some Lobelia plug plants and was wondering if i can plant them in my border along with daffs and crocuses? Sorry if it sounds a silly question but I am a true beginner!image

    you really need to wait until the frosts are over wherever you are Jen.

    What type Jen19? You get upright and trailing. If they are uprights, well yes, but not yet, grow them in pots for a bit and plant them out later after any chance of frost. If trailing, better in baskets or planters.

    They should be potted on and kept in a light frost free place and planted out after the risk of frost.

    so probably mid april time to plant them out? So in the mean time should i put them in pots and keep them in the (coolish) conservatory?

  • Hi Jenimage found a fresh batch at Lidl and they we're mixed trailing .I've potted them on into modules and got 38 out of 40 all are doing ok in cold greenhouse which is the same as my conservatory so good luckimage

    Yes to conservatory, but May would be safer.
