Plants coming !!!! Not ready !!!!

Post  rds1955 on 3/17/2010, 8:02 pm

I got notification from the seed company that my order for 75 Strawberry Plants, 5 Black Berry Plants and 6 Grape Plants were shipped, enroute and would arrive tomorrow !!!

I'm not ready... Whats the best way to store them for about a week before the garden is ready to have them planted?

I just got my strawberries today. They came with very clear directions on how to store them. So do not panic.

Our nursery has strawberries laid out in milk crates (sort of like milk crates) with some moist sand over the roots. They've been in them for the last two weeks. Don't know if that's a viable option or if it's the way to go though.
