I have a question I ordered some strawberry plants and they just came in yesterday I want to plant them in the sping in some straw bales can I just keep them in the paperbag they came in or should I plant them in pots. Living in a warm climate here should I just plant them now. As you can tell this is my first time for strawberrys...rucky

Just plant them now. They'll dry out and rot eventually in the bags. In your climate, they'll go ahead and start rooting in and growing.

Yes, they need to be planted, Just got mine last week. If you dont plant them now, no berries in the spring. Mine are filling out SO fast already. I actually have them in topsy turvies...i used to make funof those things, but they are working beuatifully with the berries. Keeps them off the ground too.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
