Hi- I just recieved three bare root hazelnut plants.
I cannot plant them now- the ground is frozen (zone 5).
The Arbor Day foundation said they would replace the plants for spring shipping. But were no help on what to do with them now. I am assuming they are alive but asleep and that there is a chance to pull maybe one or two thru this disaster.
I am thinking of planting them in a pot and leaving them in the garage over winter. It does freeze sometimes in the garage during the winter so I thought the pot would be better than leaving them bare root. I can't put them in the basement (I think) because we have our boiler down there and it is the warmest place in the house in the winter.
HELP please. I hate the idea of any plant dying because of a person's stupidity (shipping in December!!! for planting in zone 5).
They are in the garage now- about 40 degrees- waiting till I get some feedback.
Thanks in advance
