It depends where you live and where you want to plant it. Dicksonias can lose their leaves in cold areas, so you could be risking that lovely foliage. I am in London and would feel safe in planting out now. You must be itching to unleash it from the netting!

Hi Kevin, to be on the safe side, I'd keep it protected until winter is over as our weather is so unpredictable. Good luck!
