I purchased approx 60 asparagus and 60 strawberry bare root plants. But we still have snow on ground here. What is the best way to store them for approx 1-1.5 months until planting season arrives. Put in fridge, leave in a box in entry way?.

Welcome!

Are the root wrapped? Most important, don't let the roots dry out. But, if they are too moist, rot will set in. Store them someplace cool - if they get to warm and dormancy is broken, you will have to plant immediately or risk losing them.
