Give them a soak in luke warm water to rehydrate them Busy and then plant them. You may only get leaves but at least they may live and flower next year.
The soil here is absolutely sodden so can't be worked so, as it's otherwise calm and not quite freezing, I've been out putting up the new windbreak mesh along the northwest fence to keep the gales from blasting my potager and all the lovely black and redcurrants and purple gooseberries planted along the back bed.
Had to stop as a tummy bug has hit but when that's done the next job will be more windbreak further along to protect my hamamelis and an osmanthus from both north westerly and easterly winds which hit that far corner with a vengeance.
Now I need to stay warm so will peruse the Plant World catalogue...............
