Do you think it's too early to plant them out? Just north of London.

Hmmm, might give it a whirl then. Just worried about a bit of overnight frost. I remember I nearly lost a load of spuds at the end of May due to a particularly cold night.
Yes I think its too early. I shall leave mine until later in the month. (Norfolk) The nights are a bit cold and the plants are so bright and healthy in my plastic greenhouse, it seems a shame to risk it.

Conflicting views.
I might put half out, and see.
Maybe give it another couple of weeks just to be on the safe side?
Wait until Monty Don tells us to put them out!!
What plants are they maggie? Just curious.

Lobelia and Bacopa
Lobelia is one of the ones I have put out and we have had a mild frost since and they have been okay
You could pot them on so they are growing, then plant out in early May
tony. We are already well into the second week of May ! Its soon going to be too late , never mind 'early' !
Personally I’d put them out and I’m also Greater London.
