Yes, if you are lucky enough to be able to fork your soil (many of us have too-dry soil right now), plant them now and water them well. Don't wait!

Yes. I am doing mine today

If you can bear to, pinching off all the flowers and buds on them now will allow the roots to establish and they will flower better later

Oooh, Wagger! I just couldn't! I know it's sensible, but how cruel! lol.

It's amazing how quickly they come back though, Spritz. They only sell them with flowers on because it increases sales so much - GCs know every marketing ploy there is!

I know - and to be honest, I prefer to see which colour I'm buying - me and my colour schemes!

Well, they do put labels in

SOME do - and others are just marked as 'mixed pansies/violas' - they may or may not be what I'm after. I hate it when one of a pastel group flowers orange!

I like to see what colour they are before buying and planting then I pinch them all off once planted.

I think its a good time to plant them out and then water them abit to keep the roots moist
