Climbing Plants

I bought some climbing plants in pots - Clematis, Jasmine and Honeysuckle, should I plant them out now or keep them indoors over winter and plant out in Spring?



I think I would plant them out before the ground gets frosted, after all they are all hardy climbers

It depends on their size. If they are still tiny, I would pot them up in deeper pots and keep them in the coldframe or cool greenhouse until spring. Certainly not indoors, though!

I nearly agree with Spritzhenry. I think we had this discussion just about 2 weeks ago (if you look back Wendey, you may find it). I have lost several clematis planting out in autumn and now keep any I buy in late season sales in the cold greenhouse until spring. The jasmine and honeysuckle are for less fussy though so you might risk them. But then, as Spritz says, I am an optimist. LOL.
