Fruit trees still dormant?
So, I ordered 4 trees from willisorchards.com about 2 and a half months ago. All trees are 5-7' high. About a month ago the trees came and I planted two in the ground (a Fuyu persimmon and a hazelnut) and two - in large pots (a Wonderful pomegranate and a Brown Turkey fig). All trees came with bare roots and I planted them the day after I received them. The persimmon and the hazelnut were showing new growth already, which had dried out when I received them. The pom and the fig were fully dormant. The roots looked Ok on all the trees.
Anyway, the tress have been in the ground/pots for more than a month now but they still appear dormant. The bark on the hazelnut has acquired a deep red color, (which I take to be a good sign). The pom has just started showing some green in the bark. The persimmon and the fig look fully dormant. The three little branches on the fig have become yellowish and the tips - black. This is probably the adverse effect of all the moisture. I think I did a good job preparing the soil. I added some tree/shrub soil mix, sand, compost, and some 13-13-13 all purpose fertilizer. I water the trees every day unless it rains or the ground seems moist. Can someone tell me if what I see is normal? What should I look for? There appears to be no new growth. Did I do something wrong? The only thing I might have done wrong, it seems, was adding the 13-13-13 fertilizer to the trees in containers. I read somewhere that you shouldn't add fertilizer to a tree in container the first year...
