Similarly, how long do bare root plants take to grow?
Likewise, how do you care for bare root plants before planting? Keep the roots moist and do not allow the plants to freeze. Remove the packing material from the roots, and then soak the roots in a bucket of tepid water for about 30 to 60 minutes, but not longer than two hours. Keep the roots moist at all times before and during planting.
One may also ask, how do you ship bare root plants?
For bare root plants, wrap the roots with damp paper towel, hydrated moisture polymer, and plastic. Wrap the tops in paper. Surround with some sort of packing material to cushion and insulate the plants. Send them on their way and cross your fingers.
Should I soak bare root plants before planting?
Do not cut healthy roots shorter, even if it would make planting easier. Place the root portion of the plant in water and let it soak before you plant - several hours for woody plants; 10-20 minutes for perennials, asparagus, strawberries, etc. This good soaking will help the plant get a better start.
