Buds on bare root Cherry tree won't sprout

15 years ago

About 8 weeks ago I received several bare root fruit trees and bushes from an online company. Pretty much everything is growing except 3 dwarf North Star Cherry trees. Now it did take me about a week and a half after I received them before I got to plant them. In that time they were in my unheated dark basement, in their original moist plastic shipping container. I scraped one tree and it is green under the bark.

Any suggestions? I thought of taking all 3 trees out of the ground and soak it all, roots and buds overnight.
