So, those 3000 strawberry crowns we planted a month ago…they were all dead on arrival. Apparantly the storage facility where they were being held had the temp turned down too low, so they got frozen.
Well, we couldn’t tell the difference because they arrive as bare-root dead-looking things anyway. However, a week later we could tell something wasn’t quite right, and we were right.
Anyway, we got our replacements a week ago and they are already up and sprouted. That’s a much nice sight than a field of dead strawberry crowns.
