Planting Trees and Bulbs in Frozen Ground
Everyone says you can plant trees and certain bulbs until the ground freezes. Is this limit because of the difficulty of planting things in frozen soil, or is planting things in frozen soil bad for the plants? What happens if you manage to plant a tree or bulb in frozen soil? The dirt from the pot just sort of stayed together in a solid lump, and the soil I planted it in was sort of in chunks.
My concern is really that I don't have a good place to store the saplings or bulbs until Spring, and question my ability to store them properly. Will the trees survive in this condition better or worse then they would on the deck? Would the bulbs survive this treatment better or worse then they would survive in my apartment?
