whatever auto you plant out in your garden is going to grow 5 foot

If you train them super low profile, like I have to in containers on an overlooked balcony, you can keep them not much more than knee high.

I bend them over and train them flat until flower.

Looking good. 

At what stage do you start to train them

At no more than 10 - 12 inches.

Start while they're still nice and pliable low down. Anchor the base and tie the top down the other way. As the branches grow you tie them down too. Keep  bending/ pinning/ tying the whole plant down horizontally until signs of flowering and through the first bit of stretch.

Here's one so you can see what's going on.

I just wonder what the implications are for doing that outside. I mean I have never actually tried it because I have always felt that that bunching the foliage like that exacerbates the risk of mould strike. I wonder how the girls would deal with LST in an environment when they are fully exposed to the elements.

It's fine. When they're vegging there's little risk of mould and when it comes to flower you have the plant all spread out.

At this point you can remove all the low down stuff to open it up even more for air flow.

It works . The proof is in the pudding :-)
