What to do with my bare-root strawberries until planting?
I got 25 new bare-root strawberries delivered on Wednesday but my planter wasn't quite finished so I put them in my cool (probably refrigerator temp) garage. Finished the planters Thursday and then we got more snow and frigid temps... I planned on planting them out today (Saturday) but woke up with a stomach flu. I'm hoping to feel better tomorrow and be able to get them planted out but I'm wondering how long they will be okay in my garage before they become a wasted investment... is it already too late? Should I do something else with them in the meantime? I imagine if they were sitting at a nursery or a big box store they would be stored quite similar to the conditions in my garage, but I wanted to make sure there isn't something else I could be doing to give them a better chance.
