How to Care for Your Liners upon Delivery
Once you have unpacked the plants, check the liners to see if they are in need of water. If needed, water the liners sparingly and place them in a cool, shaded area. If you plan to hold liners for an extended period, place them in the appropriate amount of light per variety. Watch watering. Liners need more water monitoring than larger containers.
Your rooted liners are ready to be transplanted as soon as you receive them. Most perennials require a loose, well-drained potting mix.
When potting, place the liner in the center of the container and plant the plug so the old soil-level is flush with the new. Planting too deeply may result in rot. Not planting deeply enough may lead to root exposure resulting in injury or death of the plant. After potting, water the containers to eliminate air pockets in the soil.
Liners may be shipped dormant during the winter months. If receiving dormant material, you may hold liners in trays until they begin to break dormancy, then plant in containers. If potting dormant material, be careful to control soil moisture until the plant is actively growing. Do not apply feed to dormant material until it is beginning to show signs of growth.
