Before going to plant them !

Choose plants in bud, rather than those that are in flower. Select those with more buds to open flowers. Potted plants were covered with flowers grown most often in greenhouses, on very favorable terms, nothing had prepared to be outdoors, the wind, the cool nights, etc. There is therefore acclimatise for a few days at the foot of a place protected from drafts, the outer wall. Water them as needed so that the soil does not dry: this should stay a little damp to the touch when touched without forcing above.
Prefer varieties bloom again for a long time. Carnations of India for example, to form flower buds until the time of frost. Some plants bloom in mass but do not form cocoons, their effect is limited.

This should be crumbly without compact blocks. Mix with a fertilizer rich in potassium, without exceeding the dose stated on the pack.
Plant it, cover with 2 inches of soil on top of the root ball. In heavy soil, install seasonal flowers, not the ground level if not on a high ridge of 5 cm.
Do not tamp the soil against the roots, water it heavily and will do itself.
