      Bee Balm bare roots…Needs proper preparation
      Mine looked really dried out when I received them too. After researching it, I soaked the roots in water overnight and then put each plant into peat pots with seed starting soil and watered well. After a few days, I transferred all of the the whole pots (the pots dissolve) into my garden and they’re doing great!

        Nicely packed but No Plant Growth
        Maybe I planted bulbs wrong or in the wrong location Hopefully others had better luck than I did. For $20 I was hoping for at least a little success.

          There was to be 5 roots maybe 3. I did write to van zyverden and told them how unhappy I was. If I had saved the box or some other items I should write it down and send. Well I did not save box or other items. So I have not contacted Van Zyverden.

          Buy elsewhere
          These come from Spring Hill Nursery. They do not sell good quality plants. These were received dry as dust and shriveled. I planted them but they show no signs of life.
