Answer: I think the plants will rehydrate once they are in the soil. Asparagus is a perennial plant and can tolerate cold temperatures so if you can work your garden bed, go ahead and plant them now. If you cannot work the soil yet, pot them up into potting soil in nursery type containers and place them outdoors. They will plump up and will stop sprouting (if the weather is still cold). You can keep them outdoors in the pots until you can work the garden and get them in their permanent spots in the garden.
