Planting seedlings that have started to grow.

I received an order of white pine bare root seedlings this week. When I opened the box I could see that they had already broke dormancy. The candles were almost an inch long on some. They looked healthy otherwise. I went ahead and planted them. I planted them close enough to house that I gave them a good watering. Has anyone had any luck planting bare root seedlings like that? Thanks.

As long as the roots didn't dry out, you will be fine. How many did you plant?

Just fifty. I've never seen them that far along before. I can't remember from previous years but it seems like a little late shipping. Thanks.

I had some that way too. I planted them and two weeks later they are still growing.

I've done it with red spruce.

The key is plenty of water which sometimes is hard to impossible to do.
