LA: storing until planting

Hello all,

I've just dug up a big clump of LAs and had a very satisfying time
'pruning' the iris borers that I found--both borers and pupae. I cut
the leaves to about 12" and the roots to 2-3" to make it easier to
plant them. Right now they are sitting in a bucket with a couple of
inches of water in it.

Some will have to stay out of the ground for 2-3 weeks before their new
homes are ready. What is the best way to keep them? As they are with a
little water on their roots or dry in a well-ventilated bag? I don't
really have any place to heel them into the ground but I could make a
small area if that is best.

Thanks for the advice,
Nancy Coffey,
Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada zone 5a
