This would be a great opportunity to boost the growth for the year! Using a horticultural light will extend your season, and will allow you to start the growth much earlier in the year.
I would recommend, at least, 200 watts of light per tree, but the 315 watt Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) is one of the better choices.
