If it is neither waterlogged nor frozen it can go in the ground, but do keep an eye on the forecast if these conditions are forecast in the next few days.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

It's been so mild that it's easy to be lulled into a false sense of security. To be really sure, I would pot it up and add just enough water to bed it in. Wrap some bubble wrap or similar around the pot, then put in your polytunnel.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

If it were me i'd put it in the ground in position, you can always put fleece over
if you really need to, but only you knows your ground and how the weather is
in your area.
After a 3 year wait i finally have my allotment. HELP! (2/10/11)
