i received some very dry and shriveled bareroots from a reputable online nursery. i have potted them up, but am wondering (way early, i know) what are their chances to actually root and develop. anyone here have any advice other than to just wait-and-see?

thanks for the reply -- i'll do that!

funny, when things like this happen, all i can think about it the waste of the poor division, which was much happier still attached to the original plant...!

It is always good to soak the roots in water for about 30 minutes before planting.
