  • I will be interested to hear what those who know say. I would have thought that if you plant them out now then they will be big enough to survive winter.

  • well thank you for that very useful and wil give it a go and see how things go will the foilage still die down?

    I trim mine back by a third in october and strip all the leaves and flowers,they then start regrowing before the winter. If you can keep them above 5 degrees they will continue to grow and you can start pinching out.This is what you can achieve.
