I bought some very pretty Gerberas today, anyone know if it will be ok to plant out in garden for rest of summer. Was thinking of putting them in front garden a westerly sunny position….

See the answer I posted to your question.

They should be fine, just keep them watered.

Mine sometimes lean over and wilt, but a good watering, and they stand back up within an hour or two.

I like Gerberas. They are so pretty.
I've never tried growing them though.
I hope they enjoy wherever you decide to plant them :)

Depends on the variety as to whether they survive the winter Holly, we have some that have come through two and others just rotted off, I love them because they flower for ages and they are such attractive place plants.
