I agree you'd have to start these off in a greenhouse before planting out to allow them to get a good root system going. We are already getting frosts here in Derbyshire if I was to put these straight out in the garden they would struggle imo. Better off buying less but bigger, stronger plants so they can get established for winter faster.
My experience of the deals is that they don’t get bit or flower well from plugs. I’ve started just buying less but larger plants for a better effect.
As they come from Jersey and I am in the North of the UK they may not be hardy enough. Should I purchase so or find a more Northern supplier ? Otherwise great find..Thanks OP
Cheers op...just ordered the £9.99 deal.
Got some of these on a offer a few weeks ago. Very healthy looking plug plants. I put some direct in baskets and they are already flowering. The rest I planted straight out. They are all winter hardy so they should be ok.
