What to do with plants? Ground frozen
I live in zone 5, but Bay Laurel sent my blackberry order (placed in December or January). The ground is frozen solid. These are 2 bare root blackberries. 10" sticks with good root systems. Roots wrapped in a plastic bag.
My first thought is to temporarily put them in small pots. (I intend to pot them in the long run anyway.) As is typical for us in the winter, I can't open the doors to the shed where I keep the pots and potting soil until the weather warms up. I could buy new pots and more potting soil. But that seems like a waste of money and it kinda torques me because bay laurel shouldn't have sent the plants this early.
Can I wrap both plants (the entire plant for cleanliness in the fridge) in plastic and put them in the fridge?
The forecasted lows for the next 10 days are 37, 6,17, 34, 22, 18, 19, 28, 25, 28,
The forecasted highs for the next 9 days are 37, 21, 48, 41, 30, 29, 43, 40, 43
Can I just keep the whole bundle in an unheated garage?
