Because of the beautiful, day-after-day, much needed rain, I had a gardening problem. My bare root asparagus arrived in the mail, and it was too wet to plant. I came up with the idea of planting the 10 roots in individual brown paper bags. I set up a doubled lunch bag, filled it with dirt, and gave it a try. The bag almost immediately split. So I got plastic bags to act as sleeves to hold the paper together.
No transplant shock. Now I just have to wait two or three years.
Based on my success, I decided to do something similar for my fig tree cutting. It will stay in its bag till I figure out where to plant it.
