trouble with strawberry transplants
Strawberries went on sale at Lowe's a few weeks ago so I bought some for really cheap. Some of them were small and looked a little rough (dead leaves). I planted them and they aren't doing well (I know you're supposed to plant in the spring/fall typically).
I put straw mulch around them today but they didn't have any mulch for about two weeks. Have the plants gone dormant from the heat by chance or are they dying? It's getting up to 95-100 here every day. Should I put row cover over them or would that heat the ground up too much? Basically I need advice on getting them through the heat and dry spell.
