Would you please be so kind as to give me a bit of advice oh wise gardening ones?

I ordered a pack of 72 plug plants from Van Meuwen and they have arrived :-) so that's a start! There are 12 different varieties

I've googled what type of soil/light/dimensions they are all so know where they will go best in the garden.

My question is (and I'm sorry if it's daft) how many of each do I plant together? For example - I have five doronicim little leo - do i plant them together but a couple of inches apart, or closer or in different bits of the garden altogether? They are teeny tiny.

I would pot each one up and only plant them out when they're decent sized plants - so, possibly around September time or maybe even next Spring. In my experience, those tiny plug plants need a fair bit of nurturing if they are to do well.

Disclaimer: I am no expert, but have ordered a fair few plug plants!

Agree with Lost. Unless they're annual bedding plants to flower this season but I am assuming they're perennials for next year?

A lot of things want to be bigger than plug size when they go outside to be in with a chance of withstanding the slugs.

What are they?

I'd repot into larger pots first. Plugs are just babies.
