Q.Is it ok to plant a bare root seedling when it isn’t dormant
So I’ve been seeing average size little pine trees around the park that I live my so I took some out of the ground and I was wondering if it is ok to plant a bare root pine tree when it isn’t dormant?
What is your alternative? Gardeners refer to bare root plants and these are, by definition and necessity, dormant. Once dormant, the soil is removed. If you don't pot up your trees right away, they will die.
