If plants are dry, stand the trays, pots, or roots for a few minutes in water, until the compost is fully moist again.
Stand young plants in a bright, warm position, out of direct sunlight. Having been carefully nurtured under ideal glasshouse conditions, your plants will be sensitive to scorching sunshine.
Store tubers and bulbs in a cool, light, well ventilated and frost-free place, away from direct sunlight before planting if required.
Choose and prepare the area and soil ahead of planting. Remove weeds, dig in compost or manure, add dressing of a balanced fertiliser, and break the soil down to a crumbly texture.
When planting up your containers and baskets, mix water-retaining gel granules and a slow-release fertiliser with the compost. Together they will save you time with both feeding and watering later in the season.
Keep all plants well-watered until they are fully established.
