Perennial lucky dip.

LongvillLongvill Posts: 33
Hi All.
I recently bought a perennial lucky dip from dobies. 
They arrived and I have potted them into small pots. 
The description that came with them was very vague. See below.
I am not sure how to treat them. Should I pinch some tips out. Or should I wait to try to identify them as something more precise before I do anything with them. 
Thanks in advance for your advise. 😄😄

    If you could post some photos of the plants, maybe split them into groups,  it would help with giving advice  :)

    They are easy plants to identify if they have some leaves on them now.
    as Anni says, if you post photos we can tell you what they are.

    Which would leave middle row bottom pic as dianthus, although the leaves look a bit wide for that

    I think the middle four at the back on the first pic are the knautia.
