Hello all. New member, first question. I have been waiting on an order of bare root strawberries to fill out our bed. They were delayed from the nursery and finally shipped on June 1st and should have been delivered by the 4th or 5th. They disappeared at a post office in Missouri on the 4th and finally reappeared on the USPS tracking site today in St. Louis. They will most likely be delivered here next Monday or Tuesday, (06-15 or 16).
My question is how likely are these plants to still be viable after 2 weeks in transit?
I suspect the news will not be good, but I am not looking forward to running the gauntlet with the post office trying to get a claim filed. To say they have been unhelpful is an understatement.
Thank you for your thoughts on this.
