Dried out bare root crab apple hedging
Three crab apple trees I bought on line, arrived dried out one week before I planted them. I didn't add any water that time. I planted them today (soaking the roots before just planting). Apparently it's death to bare root trees and bushes to let the roots dry out. Is there any chance they might make it? I'm wondering if I should buy some more. If I want to plant more, they would have to go in before spring, which is the time I would see the leaves begin to bud. Any thoughts?
