Hello, I'm fairly new to gardening. Is it ok to plant Echinacea (magic box), Aquilegia (swan mixed), Coreopsis (sunray) and Poppy ( Pizzicato) in October. I bought them around 6 weeks ago and they have been outside since in 9cm pots. They seem to be ok at the moment, but I would like to plant them out in the garden. I live near Manchester. Any suggestions or advice would be most helpful. Thank you in advance.

great time to plant anything, mulch them after planting, to give them some protection from their first winter.
