Watering dormant trees in pots?
I have some mesquite trees that I started from seed in tree pots this summer. I'd like to leave them in the nursery one more year before planting them out. I've never cared for deciduous trees in a nursery setting before.
Is there some risk of rotting the plant if you keep it too wet during the winter after it's lost all its leaves and is dormant? Should I try to keep the pots on the drier side? Or keep them moist?
