Q.Time to Plant the Berry Bushes
We are living in NC near Charlotte. We would like to have a garden with fruit trees and berries. We bought blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and grapes at our local Lowe’s store. Plants are wrapped. When can we put them outside in the ground? Or should we wait, and for how long? Also, if we have to wait, should we unwrap it and water it?

I would go ahead and unwrap the plants, watering them when dry to the touch.
