HERBACEOUS PERENNIALS

Trim away dead or damaged roots and shoots, pull out any weeds from within the clump and dust the planting hole with bonemeal.

BARE-ROOTED PLANTS

Use a hole at least 10cm wider than the roots' spread; arrange carefully and firm around with peat and bonemeal or planting mix.

CONTAINER-GROWN PLANTS

Knock from container, gently tease out the roots at the edges and firm around with peat and bonemeal or a proprietary planting mix.
