    Planting new trees

    I live in zone 7 (mid AL) and just received my order. Many of my trees are very small and I am a little worried about planting them until they are a bit larger and easier to see. Is it possible to plant them in pots for a time and transplant them when they are larger? Or will this compromise them a bit? I do have a greenhouse where I could keep them to protect from extreme cold or heat.
    Thanks!

    RE: Planting new trees

    Copied from the faq...
    We would prefer that the trees we ship at planting time be planted in the ground according to the instructions that accompany them. Theoretically, trees can be grown in pots, but this is a technique that requires quite a bit of time and effort and we've found that the failure rates for our trees planted in pots is very high.
    Tree roots prefer constant moisture levels and steady temperatures in order to grow. Pots can easily freeze solid or become extremely hot (115F) and dry in direct sunlight. Since trees need to stay dormant during the winter the option of putting them in a window will not work since they need to be kept cold.
    Now is a great time to plant in your area so I'd plant them in ground and mark their location with a wooden stake and a 12 inch (to start) mulch ring. Potted trees are hard to keep alive.
