Q.Planting Persimmon Trees Now
It is just before Thanksgiving and I learned I have two persimmon saplings on their way to me in east/central Ohio. I will plant them as soon as they arrive. What can I do to be assured they will survive the winter here? If they bud out and grow I can take them from there.

I don't know how harsh your winter gets; you may prefer to keep the young plants in a garage or shed through the winter and plant them in the spring. If you do plant them now, make sure there's plenty of mulch around the base, and you may even consider wrapping them in burlap or plastic to insulate against the weather. After all, they are just babies. Best of luck with these.
