just recieved 24 oak trees in the mail about 3 ft tall. i was wondering if anyone knew a cost effective way to protect them from being munched on and dug up. thanks in advance
i have them in large pots with potting soil right now keeping them there untill nov. would be perfect. but i have a few more questions.Put them in the flower bed or garden and keep the watered. Transplant in Nov. or next April.
Wire cage them to keep them safe.
I just uncaged a set of mine at 6-8 foot tall.
Good luck.1. if theyre in large pots in clusters will the roots grow together over the next 4 months. i have roughly 2 inches of soil between their root system
Could, but shouldn't pose a big issue.
2. if theyre shipped to my house and placed in potting soil will they still have throuble because theyre still being transplanted from the nursery to my pots.
No problem, just keep them in dirt, and water every 2-3 days. Keep them out of direct sunlight if possible. Under a shady tree is best until they get used to this heat and direct sunlight.
