When to plant 'roots' ?
I bought two geraniums (roots) and a pink Astrantia in Wilko about a week ago. I used to have the blue & white geranium in my previous property and hadn't seen them on sale anywhere until now. I have a creamy white Astrantia and wanted a pink one so thought I'd buy it while it was available - I don't buy the majority of my plants in Wilko, by the way! My question is, when can I plant them out? They are in cellophane packets in compost (the geraniums have thin shoots showing) and the instructions say plant asap after purchase and then, in another part 'in early Spring.' CONFUSED! I live near the south coast but have had a few frosts here lately. I don't have a greenhouse but I have some Fuschia and Pelargonium cuttings and Irises coming on well in my brick shed, which has large windows.
