Re: bags for bare root

Plastic grocery bags work great. Damp newspaper can be used to retain moisture. The bag handles can be tied together at the top to keep out air. This works good for hostas that are actively growing also. Save em up. The grocery store would probably sell you bags also. The cultivar name can be written on the bag. Also put a label inside. I have kept growing bare root hostas for a week to 10 days before in this manner. Small holes in the bottom of the bags will drain excess water.

Does anyone have a good source for plastic bags to use when selling bare root hostas. bip@tdsnet.com
