Just opened up the box of goumi plants I ordered and found them covered in blooms. Kinda sad looking blooms. Planting in less than 48 hours. Should I pinch off all these flowers to make plants focus on root growth?

They're 5 feet tall rooted gallons and tag says "bearing age".

If they're in pots you could leave them in my opinion, but if it's bare root definitely pinch. If it were me I'd take them off either way
