Answer: The answer to your question dreally depends on the weather and on the soil temperature and moisture levels. Bare root shrubs can take weeks to leaf out, and in the meantime the buds should still be plump. Bareroot perennials can also take weeks to begin into growth and emerge from the soil, but there should still be some "alive" appearing buds at the crown. When planting bareroot material, the plants should be stored in a cool location until planting, then the roots soaked in water to rehydrate them just prior to planting, then planted at the same depth as they grew before, and finally, the soil should be kept moist but not sopping wet until they come into growth.
