Yes, just make sure that you add calcuim for the first two weeks of their growth cycle.  Pour right around 1/2 gallon of milk  (whole, 2%, 1%, even skim milk will do the job) around the base of the plants themselves. Pour the milk on in the evening, that way it will acculmate the plants to their new enviroment and allow the milk to seep to the roots, remember to do this for 2 weeks only, your plants will bloom quite wonderful after this treatment and they will do fine.
