Re: arbor day sent little fir trees

Check with your local Extension office and see what they recommend.  The
lilac shouldn't be a problem, but the firs might need extra care.  It's not
a good time for planting evergreens, but they'll probably be safer in the
ground than in a pot.  I would water them well every week (unless there's
been a good rain) until the ground freezes.  If you have some of those
tomato cages, you could put one around each plant with a wrap of floating
row cover to reduce drying by sun and wind.  Check with the Extension,
though.  They have pros who know what works in your area.  Bruce
