What to do with “trees” sent to us but we can’t plant now?



We received these various 8 “trees” from an Arbor Society and can’t plant them until Spring. They were separated an put in a vase with water and are kept in our laundry room where it is warm with some light. Will this get them through the winter until we can plant them in the yard when we are able? I will change the water peroidically.

This is a picture of our 8 trees being kept in a vase with water.

    Place them in a large pot with soil to carry them over until Spring. I am not sure water only will give them the nutrients they need until then.

    I would separate them into their own pots with soil, that should help them take root and survive until spring.

    Joy is right. Put them in a large pot with some good quality potting soil. Water them so the soil stays moist. Plant in the spring!
