I bought some Osteospermum Sunny Shelia plants a couple of months ago and potted them on hoping they would be in flower by now. They are not and I wonder if they can go straight into the flower bed or failing that will they overwinter in a cold greenhouse?



They won't survive the winter, as they're not hardy, even in a cold greenhouse you might lose them, I'm afraid. I'd plant them out and see if they flower soon - they should!

Thank you Spritz - they will go straight in the border. I chose this colour as they look stunning against blue flowers - and I have a lot of Johnsons Blue geraniums.

Why not try a few cuttings? I'm going to, even though I didn't do well last year!
