Get 'em in - there won't be there next year to to it otherwise.

Mrs. Digger's are only just coming through from last year's that we started from seed. (Forgot to dig them up!).
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

I knew some one who grew hundreds, if not thousands, for cut flowers (for sale) and he would start planting his cuttings out in June after danger of frosts was past.

When all the cuttings were in, which would be about now, he would plant the tubers he had taken them from, and they would all grow and flower, but they did all have some healthy shoots on (probably unlike any reduced packets of tubers that might be around the shops at the moment).
