help my new maples havent taken root
i recently bought my first house. i had ten sunset red maples delivered (bare root). i had to put them into makeshift buckets until i could get them in the ground, which was about 3 weeks.
here are my conditions:
extremely shallow hard pack--used auger to bust through and plant
we have a strng clay pressence in our soil.
more than adequate water--1 five gallon bucket per week plus sparatic watering.
