Proper time to plant
I recently bought a coupe of pear trees in containers (4 or 5 feet tall). I know less than nothing about fruit trees of any sort, so I want to know when I can plant them in the ground. Most videos I've watched, show them being planted in early spring.
I live in zone 8, NE Texas. It is very unusual for the ground to freeze more than several inches deep, but it is mid-November. Should I wait until spring? If so, how should I store the tree over winter?
I tried to search for this information, but did not find enough to feel comfortable that I knew what I was doing. I am sure it has been covered many times here.
Thanks for any information or things I may have overlooked.
