wilted strawberries

wilted strawberries

i got given a load of strawberry plants earlier this week (off freecycle). some were 'off shoots' some were actual plants. i couldn't plant them the day i got them so i put them all in a bucket and gave them a bit of water. the next day i planted them and they were looking a little wilted by this point. i planted some in a strawberry pot, a couple in normal plastic pots and some directly in our [rather clayey] garden. i gave them plenty of water. that was yesterday evening. this morning they looked decidedly floppy. and still do (it's now night time). do you think they might perk up? did i do something wrong? is there anything i can do to help them out? i'm in the uk, by the way, if that makes any difference. any help/suggestions would be great as i'm a bit of a beginner with all this!

    Same thing happened to me. I bought some strawberry plants yesterday. I didn’t plant them for a few hours. Planted them in a pot yesterday and not they are floppy. I hope someone answers soon.
