Is this plant "garden ready"?
These Salvia are hardy plants but it can often be best to put them in a more sheltered spot when they first arrive with you. This will depend on the time of year. In the colder months be more cautious. The Starter plants will benefit from a warmer spot to help them establish.
What compost should I use?
A good quality multipurpose compost is ideal for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients.
