Temporarily planting fruit trees in containers
I ordered some fruit trees in February which should be coming today. Hurray! They are apple (5), pear (2), cherry (3), peach (1 self pollinating) and a black current bush. The trees are all dwarf or semi-dwarf. The Dh and I are going to have some drainage work done in our yard later on this summer. I wanted to wait to plant the trees until the drainage work is done. So I probably won't be able to give them their permanent home until this fall.
Can I temporarily plant them in containers until the fall or would they be better temporarily planted in the ground and then moved? How big of a container will I need for a temporary home (I imagine the trees will be 3' to 5' high)? Any other helpful advice?
