when and how to transplant dogwood seedlings outside
I currently have about 60 dogwood seedlings that are three to four weeks old. Should they be transplanted to outdoors this fall? If so, what procedure should be used? If not, how do I keep them over winter indoors? Your help is appreciated, especially since I've not done this procedure before! Charles Justice Bloomington, Indiana

Once the seedlings are 4 inches tall, they can be transplanted out to the garden or moved into pots.
Be careful not to damage the roots when moving the plants.
Dormant plants are more forgiving of transplant, so you can leave the seedlings in the trays until next spring. You can then transplant them before they leaf out in the spring.
