Okay so I have been traveling Texas for work, and while at Austin I ended up seeing many customers in Bastrop TX. Well, Bastrop had just had a huge fire that devastated their Pine Tree forest and burned many people's homes down. It was considered something like the top 3 worst fires of the nation's history or something like that.
Well, they had a convention which was nice and I went to support, and they were giving away pine trees, and a few oaks and plums.
They had so many leftovers I ended up taking about 5-6 baby pines and about 2-3 oaks and 1-2 plums.
Well, they had no soil or anything they basically had them bare rooted, and the problem is i got them on saturday and I won't be home until wednesday or thursday.
What do I need to do to help them survive! I went to the store and bought a bit of organic potting soil and put it in their bag so they can start getting some nutrients, and they have had some water too, they went about 1-2 days without soil.
I'm quite concerned with them, and what to do once I move.
My second set of questions is... the house i have right now is not my permanent residence, im going to be renting it out in 2-3 years and moving to another home. If I plant the pine trees and oaks in pots they would become rootbound I suppose, would they die? or would they be stunted?
Because I would love to keep them in pots then plant them wherever i move and hope the roots would grow again and they would get big.
Is that possible? or would I just have to plant them and then get some cuttings and root them or something.
Advice please! Need help!
