Planting out?

Goldie4Goldie4 Posts: 14

I stay just west of Edinburgh, so bear that in mind :)

I have sunflowers, sweet peas, cosmos, Livingston daisies in my greenhouse.  I feel its still a bit early to plant out? 

Where are you and when do you plant out?

    I'm not far from Edinburgh. Sweet peas can go out anytime - in fact now is the time to start hardening all your plants off. I normally harden them off for a couple of weeks and then plant last week in May, first in June time.

  • We are East Lothian-I'm desperate to get my plants out as they are being badly attacked by greenfly in the greenhouse, hoping there might be more predators out in the open. But... suppose I'd better wait, I am hardening off next week and aiming to plant out end of May. 


    I'm in Dumfriesshire. All my hardy annuals including Sweet Peas are put out at the end of April. Half hardy annuals are in the process of being hardened off ready to go out end of May.

    I am in Sheffield. The hardening off started yesterday and will transplant into ground next weekend. I can't wait.

    Thanks. I dont have a cold frame, just a teeny greenhouse. Do I leave the door open or start lifting things out and in?
