PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS
Roots must be kept moist. Do not allow them to dry out. Don't keep them wet either as they will rot.
Keep them in the paper bags and plastic bags that you received them in, and store them in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator until you plant them.
Plant them outdoors, as soon as the ground thaws! The sooner you plant them, the better.
All of them should be planted in the landscape ~April 1st.
Do NOT WAIT! Sorry, there are NO GUARANTEES on Bare Root plants.
