If you bought one -- Here are the planting directions from the grower.

 

Keep seedlings in a cold area out of the sunlight. The ideal temperature range for holding dormant seedlings is between 33 and 34 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  • If cold storage is not available, place the seedlings in a dark and cool place such as a cellar or basement. Ever so slightly open the bag to allow for a bit of air circulation.  Check the seedlings every 24 hours to make sure the roots and sphagnum moss are moist.  Gently spray with water as needed.
  • If you intend to take the seedlings out of their original packaging, it is important that the roots remain moist but not wet. Check moisture content daily.  Roots must remain moist, but not soaking in water.
  • If the seedlings will not be planted within 3-5 days of receipt or cold storage is unavailable we suggest you use a method known as “heeling in”. Choose a protected location out of direct sun.  Dig a trench deep enough that the roots fit in without bending them.  Keep the bundled seedlings intact.  Place the roots of the bundled trees in the trench and completely cover them with soil.  Give the trench a thorough watering and let settle for a few minutes.  Add a little more soil as needed to ensure the roots remain covered.  Firm the soil with your foot.  Heeled in seedlings will keep for several weeks if they are watered thoroughly once the soil begins to dry out.  Even with this method, it is highly recommended that you plant before any leaves are sprouting.
