Japanese Maple...buy now, plant in spring?
I've got the opportunity to purchase 3 small (in 2 gallon pots) Japanese Maples for a very good price. I'm in the process of redoing a garden bed, ripping out a ton of invasive perennial roots (planted by the previous owner), but won't have the bed ready to plant this fall.
Can I leave the trees in their pots over the winter and plant next spring? If so, what should I do to protect them? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
