    Probably at the end of Feb/beginning of March, unless we get another sudden freeze. It just means that they have a few roots to start with.
    Gillykat and Dynamite like this.

    I plant mine in trays of potting compost too. About 5cm apart and the top 2/3 above the soil.

    I start hardening off when the roots start looking a bit tangled but easy enough to shake loose.
    I go by the root growth not by the top growth as my aim us to make it difficult for the birds to tank them out.
