Re: Help please


Thanks ! That explains it! I wonder if I should soak them...glad I didn't
plant them before now as they would have rotted!...I got them last June when
I took the Historic Landscape Restoration course. Any suggestions from the
group would be appreciated as I've never planted tubers before...How deep?
fertilizer? when?
