Morning

Seems strange to think you are heading into autumn Pat, just as we are hurtling in to spring.  Do you have good autumn colour to look forward to in your area?

Got everything crossed for LilyP and family.

Bare root has already started sprouting in packet?

Sounds like rot to me too  not much hope of recovering from that. Hope you can get a refund

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

I would plant it with the shoot in tact - it will soon green up when exposed to the light.  Its a good sign that its alive and kicking.  Be careful with it though, as the shoot might be a bit delicate and you don't want the knock it off.  What type of plant is it ?  That will be a clue as to whether it will send up more shoots, or whether this is likely to be the only one.
