Bare root strawberry advice

I am new to planting strawberries. I purchase 25 june bearing plants and 25 everbearing plants. It has been about a month now since I have planted them and most of my everbearing plants are doing well. There is quite a bit of foliage on them and some are starting to produce buds. However, my junebearing plants are a different story. Roughly half of them are showing signs of life. Is all hope lost for the plants that are not showing signs of growth? Or do I need to give them more time or possibly different care? Any tips or ideas would be much appreciated!

In what zone do you live? Regardless of type of strawberry it is best to take off the first buds (flowers) that bloom. This is so the roots establish themselves. How long ago did you plant them. Mrs. G

Thanks for the tip! I will go out and pinch off the buds on the plants that are producing them. I live in zone 8b and I planted them about 3-4 weeks ago.
