Reviving last years perennials still in pots

8 years ago

With the warm weather lately I've been planning a new flower bed. When I drove by a local nursery yesterday I saw they had potted perennials (from last year, in their same pots) for 50-75% off! The thrifty side of me thinks this would be a great deal if I can revive them.

Most look root bound and have dead leaves still from last year, they are summer and fall blooming so no new sprouts yet. Should I try buying some? If so, what are the best methods to revive them? Besides actually planting them in the ground and fertilizing? Thank you :)
