Storing Bare Root Plants Before Planting

How do you handle bare root plants when it's too cold to plant outside? 

Dormant plants can be moved to the garden as soon as the soil is workable.  If this is not possible store bare root plants in a refrigerator or other cold but frost free location.  If the plants started growing you will need to pot them up and grow them indoors until the danger of frost has passed.  A cold frame or floating row cover will allow you to move these and other transplants outdoors a bit earlier.  The covers hold the heat near the plants protecting them from frost.
