Strawberries

tucker46060April 17, 2013

I received an order of bareroot strawberries from Nourse; they came yesterday, and we got >1.5" of rain so I haven't been able to prep the raised bed. Plan was to plant them this AM, but now my schedule won't allow me to get to them until this weekend.

What's the best way to keep them until then? Currently they are in the unopened box in our (cool, 40-50F) garage.

Thanks in advance

If unopened, they should be fine for up to a week.
