Garden lighting

I am wanting to put some garden "spike" lighting in some flower beds and the ones I've bought come pre wired with 3 core rubber flex. I already have a armoured cable installed to a junction box on the wall that was installed by an electrician last year so will be connecting up to this.

How is best to wire up 8 of these back to the junction box? the lights cables are going to be too short to wire directly back to the box.

Do I have to wire another armoured under the beds (loop in and out) and use a suitable junction box at each light?

I'd say yes, as they need mechanical protection for sure. Though some would use high Tuff buried deeper than 16 inches and come up to each light. Use warning tape too
