I just purchased a bb blue limber pine that is in a 5 gal container at an end of season sale for a great price but I have never had a large tree wrapped in burlap before. Does anyone have suggestions for holding til next season. I dont have the luxury of being able to plant in ground as I live in a townhouse. I usually protect my trees in a small cold frame and bury them in wood chips. Can i safely remove the burlap and just repot back in the container now? Also should I wait til winter for a hard trunk chop and pruning??? Info I have suggests caring for it the same as JWP, which of course I dont have either...i haven't done alot of pines yet. The trunk and nebari are fantastic and I don't want to rush working on it....it just do darn hard not to work on them when you get them....
I really have it bad......that's the only thing bad about end of season sales....[/FONT]
