My wife received three dry root bergamot plants. What do I do now? Our garden is a row home backyard with a pond, so where is the best place to put them? How do I plant these dry root plants? What is the best time of the year to plant them? Can I plant them now or wait until spring?

Make sure you leave enough room for the growth of your Bee Balm plants, as they most varieties grow from 2 1/2 to 4 feet tall.
Daily water is very important for the first 2 weeks, then you can cut back. Mulching around the plants will help with moisture retention.
