Virtually always die on me when I have tried it.
I just plant the whole bunch, see who grow the tallest
and use a pair of scissors to cut off the small ones.
Make me feel like a murderer. Okay, only a little.

Who the hell ever told plant suppliers that "bare root"
was a viable way to ship plants !!! ??? How hard it
it to ship a dirt plug?

bare root could be a weight/shipping thing to
save $ (less weight). also less likely to transport
pests/diseases.

but they should be wrapped in something to keep
some moisture in there.
