Re: hello and rot salvage

It depends on your temperment - most on this list would probably say throw
them out and try again from a better source of named plant material. The
ones you have may take more than a year to recover enough to bloom. My
approach is the least energy intensive - let nature take its course. If you
carve them down, be sure and get rid of all the rot and doctor it with
something - around here folks use sulphur, but most on the list seem to use
chlorox or comet. How big a piece you will need will depend on lots of
things, including growing conditions, natural vigor of the variety etc. At a
minimum, you need something green and preferable some roots.
Happy gardening and welcome to the rot club.
