HELP! I want to save this bay tree seedling.
Yesterday my friend dug up two tiny bay tree seedlings and brought them to me planted in 5 gallon buckets. I want to plant them near my house for the smell, and dwarf them.
This morning my one year old ripped one out of the bucket whole. OUCH!!!
I dipped it in water and rooting hormone...now what?
Peat moss and fluffly dirt? Back in to it's native soil? Straight in to the ground at my house?
The seedlings came with their native soil -- one more clay than the other. My soil has less clay than both.
Please advise. I really want to save these little bay trees.
