I just purchased five random rhizomes from someone and they arrived bare rooted. My question is whether I should put them in a medium before I put them in the fridge for the next couple months, or whether they could remain mostly bare rooted wrapped in some spaghnum. They are in hibernation now.
I ask because I have successfully placed mine in the fridge only to repot them in the spring for years now. I have read of some who hibernate them bare rooted.
(Foot what it's worth, I live in zone 5b and just learned this year I could keep them outside so long as I properly cover them, I plan to try this next winter).
