Hi there all this sun is really bringing on my Penstomen Brabatus, I am thinking of planting them in my flower bed would about 10 inch spacing will be enough and is it better to put them in a row or bunched together or is that personnel preference.
Hi there all, being a relatively new gardener I have been growing Penstemon Barbatus from seed, the plants doing well I have potted them in to there own pots they have grown 2-3 inches in height, I still have them in the house on my window sill and take them out side in the day in to my 4 Tier greenhouse, so at what point can I plant them in to my flower bed Im unsure where to go from here I really don't want to harm them by doing anything to early.
