started my annual/perennials too soon?
I started my annuals and perennials during the last week of February and it appears they aren't going to hold in these containers much longer (see pics below). I have Dahlias, Agastache, Petunias, Duet Violas, and Verbanas.
1) When can I transplant them into large containers and start taking them outdoors during the day? I am leaving for a 5-day trip tomorrow so I hope that they'll be fine under the lights (16-hour timer) until I get back.
2) Do they need to be hardened off like veggies do?
3) Other than the Petunias, I don't have any experience container-ing these flowers. Any advice on this? The Agastache will most definitely be planted in the ground, I just don't know when to do it.
My eggplant and peppers on the other hand were started in mid-March and are doing nicely. They are in the last pic below.
