Hi I bought many different plants for my garden. Problem is storm moved in and not able to plant them right now. Where should I store them until ready to plant should be a few days due to ground being soaked.

Some where that they will get as much sun/lite as possible.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

If they are in small containers, leave them somewhere sheltered so they don't dry out too quick. Think about how they display them at nurseries, usually semi'sheltered if they are small plants.
If they are bare root, perhaps 'heel' them in a large tub or container in potting soil.
I often plant my smaller 4" ones into 1 gal. containers until they bulk up a bit before planting them in the ground.
