can pericallis "senetti blue" be planted in beds



Hi Andyf,

If you are planting these out in beds, don't try it yet, as the risk of frost in the UK will not pass till early - mid May at the latest, though you don't say whether you are north or south. They seem to be very tender (fussy!) plants, and I'm not sure the slugs wouldn't have a field day either. With any luck, someone who knows more about them will also post an answer to your q.

well I agree weeding. far to soon as if you get a late frost you will lose them.

And, yep, snails and slugs love them, ime.
