Secrets to buying bare-root perennials

Email

Bare-root perennials are those dead-looking roots and tubers that you can order from mail-order companies, or often find in big name stores in packages stored in wood chips or mulch. Bare-root perennials are actually dormant and are stored without soil. They are economical and allow you to buy varieties that are not available at local nurseries. However, always check to see that the variety will grow in a zone 3 environment.
