Default Jumbo Rhizome Pics & Storage

Here are my rhizomes I got today! Jumbo Cascade, Fuggle, and Mt Hood, two regular Centennials, and a Zeus. I hope the jumbo rhizomes are worth it.

Anyone have any recommendations on how to store them for the next couple weeks? I've heard to put them in the fridge in a plastic bag, but do they need to breath? Thanks!

Bag them & put them in the fridge. A jumbo should give you a good yield the first year.

Talked to Dave Wills last night. He was ready for five times to orders over last year, but he's seeing closer to 10 times.

I placed my order the 12th via USPS priority, but it didn't ship until the 17th. Not that I'm complaining, it sounds like they are swamped with orders.
