Is it safe to plant potted trees now?
The leaves haven't returned yet on the trees around here, but it's really gotten warmer and this week it's going to be in the 50's to the mid 70's almost all week so I know the leaves are coming. I also know though that the snow will probably make at least one more appearance before it's all over. I will have 4 potted trees arrive on Wednesday from Sooner Plant Farm; last year I planted their trees in May and didn't need to worry about the frost or anything.
So when I plant these trees this week, and we get frost or it snows, will the leaves just fall off and look like all the other trees around here, and then come back as the temps return?
Or will that hurt them at all? They are hardy for my zone easily. I ordered 2 Red Sunset Maple and 2 Golden Raintrees. Thanks in advance.
