We sell plants throughout the year on Ampthill country market, and some of these are tender plants in March and April and these cannot be 'left' in the garden if the overnight temperatures are close to zero.
In the UK overnight temperatures can be too cold until at least the middle of May, sometime even later, especially in the north.
So if you buy these plants you just need to keep them indoors during cold spells, or covered such as in a cold frame or a try a re-using idea mini cloche.
You can keep them on a windowsill or in a conservatory. I suggest putting them on a tray that is waterproof and strong enough to lift them, and then pop them out during the day in the sun and giving them a water, and just bringing them in at night. Keep your eye on the forecast, I am putting out an alert on twitter as a reminder if the temperature is due to drop below 3 https://twitter.com/AmpthillCM.
