New fruit trees
I just received 8 or so new fruit trees from Rolling River in anticipation of starting our small home orchard.
Question for the group.
Since they came from CA, where spring has sprung more than here in central IN, they already have some small leaves sprouting. We are forecast to have more freezing weather, last frost date not for several weeks. Will the leaves be harmed by having them outside?
They are potted, so I have some leeway before planting them (won't have time until next week+ anyway). I've pulled them in the garage for the 20F nights the last couple days. Should I go ahead and plant them next week, or wait until danger of frost has passed?
Thanks in advance.
