Planting a tree right now
I was looking at the USDA site and determined my zone is actually 6b instead of zone 5. Anyway, what are your thoughts on planting a fruit tree this time of year. It's warm this time of year but it hasn't been blazingly hot. If I could get the tree in the ground wouldn't it have a good head start for next year?
I know that most of the large mail order sites seem to send out bare root trees in early spring but some of them are still willing to send trees this time of year.
Good idea or bad idea?
