Has anyone risked putting tomato plants out yet, please?

The Dorset coast is warmer than Yorkshire, which is where I am, but no I wouldn't do so yet up here.

You need reliable overnight temps of 10 degrees or more. Have a look at what yours are on the south coast.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Here in north Hampshire itís forecast to hit 5 degrees at night this weekend so my tomatoes are staying put. Probably consider putting them out during the day this week but not leaving them out overnight till next weekend depending on latest forecast.
Keep digging

Not until end of May (maybe a few days earlier depending on forecast).

I'm tempted to put my ones in the PT out over the weekend but even cautious about this.

Mine have been planted in the greenhouse border for a few days now, if the forecast shows any low temps I'll drape them in fleece, to be on the safe side

Mine, this year Garden Pearl, are waiting in the unheated greenhouse in Sunderland. If we get a warm spell they will venture out during the day, but back under glass overnight.  Hope to get them out permanently by the end of the month, but very weather dependent.

I'm holding back on the outdoor toms for another week or two, just in case.

I only planted out the greenhouse ones just last week.
Yesterday I planted out the garden ones (in pots) so theyíll have to fend for themselves now  :D

Yesterday.
I have an excess of beef tomatoe plants, so not that bothered if they don't make it.
Nothing in weather forecast (Lincolnshire) suggest they will have problems.
Just remembered hanging baskets went out last week. All sunstripe.

Change of plan - I planted the Crimson Crush tomatoes out yesterday.

My outdoor ones went out yesterday at allotment....a good week or so earlier than usual but they were getting too big for pots, and forecast remains for warm days and mild nights for next week at least. Squashes, pumpkins and beans out today.

I put the last of my tomatoes out today. Stupice, noire de Crimee, Costolutto Fiorentino. Also the sweetcorn and cobra beans. You have to let them out into the world at some point 🤞

I'm half out as of 10 minutes ago.  It's forecast to drop down to 7 here next week so no doubt they will go purple and sulk for 2 weeks while the ones I've held back race ahead.  Rest are out on Wednesday unless the forecast worsens.
