We've had an almond tree in its box positioned in the bedroom for a while. They are supposed to ship them when it's time to plant them. But this tree arrived when the ground was frozen. Yesterday, finally, the ground was thawed enough to dig a hole and pulverize the soil. We planted the tree and watered it in. The weather is very cooperatively keeping the soil moist.
In Germany we enjoyed the blooms of the almond trees. I'm looking forward to seeing it here.
