Bare root trees not breaking dormancy
I planted 9 bare root trees that I bought from my local cooperative extension office here in Las Vegas, NV. They are all from Dave Wilson nursery. There are 3 pluots, 1 plum, 1 pear, 1 apricot, 2 peaches and a persimmon, all on their recommended fruit tree list.
I prepared the soil according to their advice by amending the native soil with compost. I dug a 3 foot wide hole about 18 in deep and added a 5 gal bucket of compost to the backfill. So far, none of them have broken dormancy. I visited the coop extension orchard and their newly planted bare root trees have all started leafing out. My yard receives about 2 hours less sun per day as the orchard but it still gets 6+ hours at this time of year. I did a scratch test and they're all green under the bark and I made sure the soil was always moist and has good drainage.
Am I just being too impatient? Any advice on what I can try to wake them up?
