First, choose the right exposure for the plants you've chosen. Some perennials grow best in full sun; some grow best under shady conditions. After finding just the right place for each of your plants, dig a hole just as large as the nursery container, gently unpot each plant and carefully place it in the planting hole. Fill in around the roots with soil, then water each plant in. After planting all your perennials, place a 2-3" layer of organic mulch over the soil in the planting bed. This will help suppress weeds, conserve moisture, and regulate soil temperatures. As the organic mulch breaks down it will provide nutrients to the roots of your plants.

Best wishes with your perennial garden.
