Lemon Verbena

Lemon Verbena

I'm expecting some Lemon Verbena cuttings to arrive in the post - hopefully today. Apparently they're already rooted and have leaves starting. I've never had Lemon Verbena before, although my gran had it in one of her old gardens and I adored the scent as a child so have always wanted some of my own. Do any English gardeners know if I need to soak it before planting, or can I just go ahead and stick it in my border and give it a good watering? I'm assuming it's going to be a little dried out on arrival and don't want to do anything to harm it!
