You can also use thoseclearplastic punnets that the supermarkets use to pack grapes, strawberries, etc, as temporary homes for plants. They won't last long, but they won't need to.
If you really have more plants than you can ever use, you can probably find a home for them elsewhere; give them to other gardeners, or swop for something you want. There may be a local group offering gardening to the disabled, or some sort of community gardening project, or Spring Fairs, coffee mornings etc in your local church hall; any of these may welcome donations of spare plants.
Just make sure you keep plenty of good specimens, and a few spares in case of failure.
