I've been told not to leave them in water before planting them as this may drown the roots. If I have already done this, how long should I let them dry out before planting?



Hi Judith and welcome to GoY, just go ahead and get them in the ground and water lightly.

Yes, don't dry them. Mine were in water for about a week and were quite OK.
