You can plant these plug plants as soon as you get them directly into the ground where you want them to grow. Do not add compost or fertiliser to the ground as, like most native meadow plants, they do not require a nutrient rich soil. Water regularly during dry weather to help establish the young plants.
Keep well watered in dry periods after planting to help establish the plants.
