Hi Everyone
I have just brought the following plants from wilkos and wondered if they can go out now
Delphinium pacific
phlox paniculata
Aguilegia barlow black




They all can BUT, I've bought plants in Wilkinson too - they're usually kept inside overnight in the store and they're in small pots, so initially, keep them outside but in a sheltered spot so they get a chance to harden off a bit, moving them further out of shelter over a week, then plant. Lord knows how well they've been cared for in Wilkie's, but you can probably assume not very well.

I recently bought plants from Wilkos and have put them all out, they are looking good. I needed lots of plants for our newly dug border so these were a bargain and so far so good. Of course we might get more frosts so protection may be called for.

Not meaning to denigrate Wilkinson plants, I buy loads from there, but still suggest hardening off - that's what I do with mine at this time of year.

I think the plants are ok but they get neglected in the shop and become very sad. I have bought plants there just to rescue them! They are usually fine with a little tlc.
