I have saplings that I received through Arbor Day Foundation. They are approx. 12-14" tall and in plastic pots. What's the best way to winter them?

I would recommend placing them in a sheltered location such as against the foundation of a house or building. Then make sure that the pot itself is insulated in some way. Piling up leaves around the pot or wrapping it in layers of bubble wrap and burlap will both work.
