Q.When Can I Plant My Rootstock In Pots?

Zone 56379 | Dunlapnoah added on December 21, 2021 | Answered

I ordered rootstock to propagate more apple trees at my home and was wondering when should I plant the rootstock in pots? Do I plant them right away when temperatures are still below freezing at night or wait until the end of April? I live in zone 4 Minnesota.

If you are planting in container, then I would advise planting immediately. You will want to keep these inside for the first year to let them get established before planting out in spring. This will give them a drastic head start.
