Hi, Received the 10 trees/shrubs I ordered earlier than expected. I was planning to take vacation in 3 weeks to get everything ready. The weather here is still cold with lows in the 30s. What are my options? Currently everything is wrapped in wet newspaper. Should I a.) Put everything in pots until I can get them in the ground in 3 weeks? b.) Keep everything as is until I can get them in the ground? c.)Dig holes now and plant them (assuming the ground lets me)? Thanks
Digg holes now and plant them. They will get an extra 3 weeks to grow roots before they leaf out.
Then in 3 weeks you can take your vacation and mulch them and plant some clover, and some onions and some daikon radish, etc
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect

I agree with Bengi - if you can, plant them now. Heeling in is just a fallback, if you can't get to doing it right now.
