I have a small "nursery" and I am in trade with someone who has requested that I bare-root plants prior to shipping. I think I can do that with cuttings but I am not so sure about established plants.
The plants in question are Lapageria rosea, Deppea splendens, Worsleya procera, Griffinia hyacinthina, and so forth. The lapagerias are somewhat touchy about their roots so I dunno if I can do that. The other plant is in the coffee family and is not too senstive but not super hardy either. Does anyone think this is do-able for these kinds of plants? They do not "go dormant", BTW. I am not sure about the Griffinia but the others don't go totally dormant - the first two grow actively all year.
Any imput is appreciated!
