Worth planting any of these bare roots?

8 years ago

Hi everyone,

I'm in zone 6a, Boston suburbs...

There are a couple of different ground covers I'm interested in planting, so I need fairly large quantities. I've found a couple of cheap sources online, all of which are selling bare roots. I'm wondering whether I'm likely to have any success with any of these if I plant them at this time of year. The specific plants are: geranium macrorrhizum, solomon's seal, european ginger, and ferns. Any thoughts on whether any of these might work? I was thinking to try the geraniums at least, since they're pretty tough. Thanks!!
