If you would like easy plants, and garden ready plants are probably what you should pick. They’re ready to go straight out into the garden, without requiring any extra care of being grown on the greenhouse, cold frame or conservatory. They are more expensive, but require a lot less work, and for some people this is a compromise to prepare to make. Plants like Geramium need to be planted in full sun. Others are less fussy and can be planted in partial shade. To get the most from your plants feed their planting instructions carefully. For instance you shouldn’t plant geraniums out until the risk of frost has passed, and this varies according to where you live.
