    The bare root plants had me skeptical. I immediately placed them in a bowl of water until I could plant the next day. By morning they were crispy & I planted them in heavily composted soil. They are in partial shade near a water spigot. In a week the leaves have grown & there is healthy new growth. I'm very optimistic.
