Q.I Had Some French Lingerie Bare Root Day Lilies Delivered And The Roots Were Flat As Pancakes. I Couldn’t Tell What End To Plan
t! I ordered French Lingerie bare root lilies from a HUGE mail order house. When I got them the roots were flat as pancakes! Will soaking revive them or should I ask for a refund? To me only ONE looks half way decent.

They don't look healthy. I would check their refund policy and call and let them know you don't like the look of the roots. They may ask you to plant them and if they don't grow properly, give you a replacement or refund next spring if they don't grow well. A reputable nursery will want you to be satisfied with their products.
