too late to plant a ficus?
well i purchased two 5g ficus nitida trees a month ago and two days later pulled out my back. i kept hoping and hoping i'd get better but the weeks rolled by and the temperatures continued to rise. now i have two 9ft trees that i've been babying on my covered patio and trying not to let the heat burn the roots. i'm feeling much better now and should be able to dig their holes in the next few days. but now that we're above 100F would this be a death sentence? the trees are too big for their containers so i either need to transplant them into larger containers and plan to put them in the yard after summer has passed, or put them in the ground now (both in full sun locations). any help is appreciated.
