bareroot - vote to pot up or plant out
I have two 30" bareroot firs that are completely dormant but have smallish root systems. I'm debating whether I up pot and keep in part shade until the fall or if I should go ahead and plant out in their home as soon as the ground thaws and is workable.
Questioning as to whether it will be less stressed in the pot or in the ground due to the limited roots. Likely a crapshoot but perhaps someone has some objective info.
Eitherway they are in pots now with well drained media
