Very inexperienced need help
I am a complete novice at gardening and landscaping. I have a 15 x 25 deck that is in need of landscaping.
I did some research and got some ideas but I made a mistake and ordered some plants from a mail order website not paying attention to how small they were going to be.
I am now the proud owner of the following:
5 tiny (3.5" pot) Shenandoah Switch Grass
2 (3 inch pot) petite bee balms
4 (3 inch pot) gentiana true blue
1 really tiny (2.5" pot) lilac
I have all this space around my deck ready for planting and these plants are obviously too small for the space.
What should I do with them? how fast will they grow? Can they be moved later? Should I fill the space with something temporary (annuals) or buy more mature shrubs and perennials?
