Plant and water

After the heat of the day has passed, set out the seedlings according to your plan. Tip plants out from their pots and gently loosen any matted roots with your fingers, then plant each seedling so that the top of its rootball is level with the soil. Water your new garden well, even though it’s late afternoon (usually, you’ll want to water it in early morning).
