"Mud in" means make the planting area a sea of mud then press/wiggle the rhizome in to the correct depth.
This gets great soil to rhizome contact which is important with rhizomes that have been out of the ground for a long time. Just so all critical details are together, the roots are trimmed very short on the rhizomes for this process.

What do you mean by "mud in", Harold?  I've never heard that phrase.  Are you planting them in pots or the ground?
