I got a bare root fruit bush today, I've never got one before so dont know if it was normal but I took it out of the plastic to soak it in water and the soil fell apart to show just a bundle of sticks (with buds). Have I been conned?

You haven't been conned as the name suggests bare roots will be just that without a pot to hold the soil of course it will wash off when you apply water. Plant it out and enjoy the blueberries Laughing

Thankyou, was beginning to panic. Smile That will make 5 blueberry bushes in my garden now. I hate having to buy them as they are just so expensive.
