So I will have trees in my house until I'm sure won't feeze anymore outside. Now just to sit these in front of windows

Yeah. I KNOW. It's early. But. Don't know how long I'll still have my company discount at the store. So these were dirt cheap. Pears and other fruit trees.
... are you sure you're not making a mistake with this? I.... thought I understood that with all trees you want to put them into the ground in their dormant time, as best you can.

so keep them dormant now by keeping them outside, then once the ground can be worked (no snow/ice on a regular basis at least), but before spring truly hits, put them into the ground and let them take off with spring.

as is you're kinda telling them that it's spring time warm by keeping them inside and they should go ahead and start trying to do their spring start up, then it'll reset them back when you take them outside.

it could be I don't know trees nearly as well as I thought I did, but that's how I've always put in trees - either late fall or early spring to minimize their root shock by being moved around.
@wretch right,but the ground isn't workable at the moment. And still snow on the ground
These are also not bareroot trees. I'm not positive but I think that gives me extra leeway with it. ( they're containerized ones
@Bexsy k. just thinking inside isn't a good place for them. outside in close to as cold as it gets to keep them dormant till things clear out. like a back porch or out in a shed/garage, maybe?

either way, happy orcharding. I don't know how viable it is for you, I know in Michigan the NA people used to plant corn atop a fish. at one time I found/used a fished based concentrate to put in/under/with newly planted trees.

can't really say if it was helpful or not, cuz I left before ever getting a fruit one off any tree there, but I like to think it made them go nuts.
@wretch I do have a shed. That's actually a good idea. Thanks!

So your a farmer ?
@pdockal no.
pdockal · 56-60, M
But your planting a fruit Grove
@pdockal I think a Grove is more than a few trees.
Even a dozen or two would hardly be a grove.

Groves are Acres in size.
Orchards are even more Acres and Thousands of Trees.
