Re: problem tree roots

Since you never freeze, I can't see any reason why your plants
wouldn't do just fine planted any time...they sure don't care if
they're dormant:-) Really, the main problem with planting things in
late fall or winter in cold climates is that they frost heave because
they haven't gotten their roots going enough to hold them in - and,
then, of course, they dry out and resent that.  But, when soil
doesn't freeze, you can plant about anything anytime.

And, I agree, plants are a lot happier in the ground than in a pot:-)
