Hi, I have been given a few over past couple of years as gifts, and bought a beautiful red one for a Christmas display. Ive had all of them out doors, and they all seem to struggle, except the red flowered one. If anyone can advise I would be grateful. If I plant out of their tiny pots into shady part of garden will that be better? Keep in pots and put inside? Some plants are confusing ????

    Leave them in their pots and let them die down for the summer. Keep them dry (in a shed for example), then start watering them in late summer. If they regrow, use them as autumn bedding. I've had some for a few years but they only grew leaves this year. I doubt whether they would survive in the open garden. You need the hardy ones for that.
