Here is practical planting and growing information intended to help you get your new plants off to a good start. If you are an experienced gardener, you might want to go directly to our Growing Guides by Plant Name and search for cultural instructions for specific plants that we sell.
This includes information about how to handle dormant plants, bareroot plants, actively growing plants. You'll also find suggestions on what to do if you can't plant right away.
