I received a shipment of strawberries and they are currently in the crisper drawer. We had about a foot of snow which delayed planting. The snow has melted where the strawberries are going and I wanted to plant them. Night time lows will be in the 30's with one night in the teens. Is it OK to plant or should I hold off? They are still mostly dormant with a few showing small signs of new growth.

Keep them in the crisper until the night in the teens passes if possible. I'd protect them from a hard freeze after transplanting if possible.

Ok. Thank you for the reply! Can't wait for winter to be over!
