Hi I am quite new to gardening, but really enjoying it.

Could  someone please tell me when it is safe to plant out the following plants , Erysimum (fragrant Sunshine) / Marguerite / Osteospermum / Gerainuims.

I would appreciate any advice given thank you.

    This time of year depends on last frost date-location -types of plants

    Never be in a mad hurry-you gain nothing- the night time temperatures are still low -anything tender hold back for at least 2/3 weeks

    Off you list -only erysimum is completely hardy

    Keep the rest with some protection-greenhouse or cold frame if you have one.

    You don't have to hold back on planting the erysimum, as lazy gardener said, it is hardy.
