Just purchased a few plants
I have just impulse-purchased some plants for my newly made-over fairly sparse back garden. (see pic - taken just after recent hailstorm!) The plants were quite cheap/small specimens. Clematis Montana, Cistus, Ceanothus, rose New Dawn. The instructions are to plant out asap (not in frosty weather) but, although I live in the Deep South - it's pretty chilly at the moment and the plants were in a heated shop. I am wondering what to do with them so they don't die of shock/hypothermia! I don't have a greenhouse but do have a brick shed with large windows that I use for potting etc. The proposed site for the plants is my back garden - sunny in summer but the sun is only reaching about half of it at this time of year (front garden south facing) Soil is quite sandy. Incidentally, the rose is to train around a wooden arch yet to be put up near the top of the garden. Not sure why pic is sideways!
