I dont plant bare root perennials out into the garden preferring to pot them up instead.
Bare root geraniums for me just aren't worth it......the bare roots are usually dry and tiny. Much better to buy plants, even plug plants.
Large shrubs, trees, asparagus, strawberries, raspberries etc etc are good as bare root.
Do you,over water your bare roots? I tend to pot up in dryish compost in the dormant season. In march/april time I water sparingly for week or so.
