Bergamot Plants

Bill Eberhardt added on August 25, 2015 | Answered

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?

I would go ahead and prepare the planting area and plant the bare roots now.
The link below has growing information.

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.
