I have to build a small section of wooden fence. I need to plant two
posts into concrete, I've never done this before. Do they go directly
into the concrete? or do you put some kind of mounting hardware in the
concrete then attach them to that? If they go directly into the
concrete, then how many inches should be underground ? thanks

Protect your posts from moisture from the soil and rain.

After digging the hole, toss in some rocks and then your concrete and
then set the post on top of the wet concrete. When you fill the hole
to the top, slope the concrete away from the post in a cone shape so
moisture does NOT stand next to the post.
