What would I, as a gardener, need to do to establish this plant?
Also, are there any places where this plant would not thrive and what structure would it provide to my garden?

Many thanks
Diane Greenwood

Hi, Diane,
Monarda 'Fireball' is here on Shoot. If you take a look at its plant page, you'll get an idea of its form, potential diseases, and the ideal soil/aspect in which to plant. From personal experience, it forms a nice upright clump. Deadheading helps it perform longer and mildew can be a problem. To best establish it, make sure it is properly plantednin the correct location. If you are in the UK, make sure it is in the sunniest spot possible.
All the best,
Kathy C
