persimon planted this year not showing any growth
I planted a bare root persimmon this year in August. So far no growth at all is happening. Called the nursery in October and they said it is still cool in Melbourne, wait and it will grow. I don't see any other problems environmentally. Soil and location all okay. Not too much or not too less water. My other fruits trees are growing okay. I am panicking. It looks stunned and nothing is happening. Should I transfer to a pot, maybe? I don't know what to do. Please advise. Also, where I could read more information?

It takes awhile for bare root plants to grow, though by now you should have at least seen some new growth. Give it till spring and if nothing has happened by then, I would definitely chalk it up to a lost cause - and possibly contact the nursery where you got it again.
