Have just purchased a weeping Santa Rosa plum for my yard. Received it shortly after it went from 'bare root' to container at the nursery. When planting it, the entire rootball fell apart leaving, in effect, a bare root plant. It has the beginnings of leaf buds and, the afternoon of the day it was planted, a bloom appeared.
Should I anticipate problems with this tree? Have I damaged the root system by losing the (not yet formed) rootball?
Advice and information would be most welcome.
