Was your plant appetite bigger than your time available for planting? Dig a shallow trench in your garden or bare soil, take the plants out of the bags, lay the roots in the trench, cover the roots well with soil, and use your heel or palms to tamp down the soil over the roots. Keep them moist and they'll hold until you're ready to plant.
