Planting bareroot plum tree today! What are my chances?
I ordered from the clearance Henry Field's sale, being so pleased last year with the little potted Carmine Jewel and the bareroot Goldcot apricot. The Goldcot did wonderfully bareroot, and the CJ did great, too.
So my French Petite plum arrived today, and I planted it right away. Our temps have been around 88, but we'll get cooler this week. Do I have a chance of having this tree do well planting this late? Any tips?
This spot doesn't get the same hours of sun as most of my other trees, so it probably won't completely fry in the open field (baking full sun all the time), but I'm still worried about it acclimating. The poor thing won't get much spring to get used to our hot summers!
