Ya, my plan was to just dig a hole and put the whole contents of the pot in. Maybe some compost as well.
I don't think that they will be more than 5 feet by the end of May. If they are I will find a solution! I was thinking about it more yesterday, and I think that I will just go ahead and plant them. I don't know why I have been 'stressing' about it. I do want to do it right and have a good first year of establishment, but if they don't all work out I can just get some more next year. It's not really as big of a deal as I was making it out to be in my head!!
