Hello...new member here... I decided to grow annuals & perennials from seed this year... very new to it all but having fun, I am a bit apprehensive about deciding when the plants are ready to go into the flower beds... I already put some which were sown in March into the beds in May, and they do not seem to have grown at all !! Anyways now I have a number of Iberis crenata, (Candytuft) they seem a bit leggy, and I think they are ready to go out, but have discovered they grow into a mat... so should I plant 3 or 5 together in a group, or 1 every 6 inches or so in a line ?? The seed packet says they are hardy annuals, I am hoping they will go to seed and come again next year ... or am I supposed to just pull them up and discard them at the end of the season...
any advice would be much appreciated.
