@awomanonabike Hi Jacqueline, I was wondering whether these are big enough to plant out yet or should I pot them on again? 🤔 #scarboroughlily #vallotaspeciosa

I’m not sure to be honest Jane. I’ve only ever had them in pots. Although I put them outside, as they love full sun, ☀️ I’ve never planted them in the garden 🤔

Thanks Jacqueline, I've had a read up on the RHS website and they can go in the ground but I think I'll find a nice pot for them then they can go in the greenhouse over winter 👍😘 @awomanonabike

I treat mine as houseplants and they sit on the living room window sill all winter

Or I might put them on the living room windowsill, I like that idea better 👍😊

According to @deekay and @tiggrx 3 years ago it has changed its name but the GT Encyclopedia still has it as Vallota Speciosa 🧐🤓

I looked in your plant list and couldn't find it, so thanks I'll get it changed to that Jacqueline. I found both names in a Google search and this seemed more popular so that's why I thought it was the right one @awomanonabike 👍😘

It’s confusing isn’t it when the names change but hopefully it will happen less and less as the genetics of plants is better understood 🤞 PS It was the right one!

I hope so, I’m still getting used to Rosemary oficinalis being Salvia rosmarinus 🙄😂 @awomanonabike
