I have a lovely TIBUCHINAin a pot presently in full bloom. I want to put it in the garden. When can I do this. I live in Cornwall/Lizard

I know you don't get many frosts down there, but Tibouchina is a conservatory plant here. Frost will kill it. It could go outside for the summer.
It grows naturally in sub-tropical areas, and even Cornwall can't compete with that. I had one a few years ago, and kept it on the patio in summer and indoors for the winter. It is a lovely plant, but a bit particular about keeping it warm etc. But I doubt that the great outdoors in the UK would be anything like warm enough. Others may, of course, have different experiences.
