I ordered 4 raspberry plants from burpee and they came today. I was expecting just bare roots and a bare cane, but instead they came as a single stem with leaves and the roots in a ball of dirt. Just a single stem maybe 8 inches tall with 10ish leaves each. Is this considered a bare root plant?
How should i plant them so they start building roots this fall and winter? Should i cut the stem leaving no leaves? I want to put them in the ground in the next couple of days, should i let them get some sun before then? Any other advice? I live in Baltimore Maryland.
