Should I Soak My Seedlings and Transplants upon receipt?
In general, it is a good idea to soak your plants for up to 6 hours just prior to planting. This ensures that the plant has taken up full moisture and gives them a good start. However, if you are storing your trees longer prior to planting, we recommend putting 2-4″ of water in a bucket or tub and placing shredded newspaper or sphagnum moss around the roots. This creates a micro-climate which will hydrate the trees without drowning them.
