I have have young plants which i started from seed and they are about 2" tall. Should i transplant them into the garden and if so what sort of growing conditions do they like

On plant Sesuvium portulacastrum



Sandy soil, sunny spot, sheltered - this seems to be hardy in Zone 9-11, but we're Zone 8 in UK, so not sure how it will fare in winter.

Thank you Bamboo. I can give them a sunny spot but not sure of the sandy soil. May be i should try to get round this by planting on in pots, then i can bring them under cover in the winter. The seeds were free with my gardening magazine.
