purchased plants

I have bought several batches of plants lately that appear to be rotting off at the roots. I squeeze the container to loosen them up, but still only get the plant and a tiny bit of soil. I used to live in the South, where this is indicative of keeping plants in small containers too long and overwatering them. Will these grow at all or should I take them back?
