How late can you plant trees and shrubs in the fall?
The good news is that I will be closing on a new house on 1.25 acres of land. The bad news is that the closing date isn't until Oct. 15.
Is there any way I could still plant trees and shrubs this fall to get a jump on things, or should I just wait until next spring? I was thinking of ordering a variety of bareroot seedlings and saplings this fall and storing them in 5-gal. pails full of moist potting soil if need be until we can close on the house and I can get to planting them. Is this a reasonable plan, or am I just kidding myself?
