Received my shipment of bareroot larkspur (Delphinium exaltatum), wasn't ready to plant outside so potted them up in peat-based potting mix. They had a small amount of green growth, planted them with crown slightly below soil line and put them in a sunny windowsill. Green growth shriveled up. Uh-oh. So then I moved them to the light cart, figuring the temps wouldn't swing as much as in the windowsill. It's been a couple weeks and no signs of life yet. Any ideas what the problem might be? I'm stumped as to why the new growth died off, I typically don't have any trouble with stuff like this. I didn't add any fertilizer, so nothing to burn it.
