Little trees in pots: Yay or nay?

15 years ago

Hi. I recently got two little chequer fruit seedlings (Sorbus torminalis). Because I'm not sure exactly where I want to plant them as of yet, and because I wanted to give the little guys a bit of protection from whatever might harm them, I opted to put them into pots.

I have two questions: Was that a good idea to put them in pots instead of directly in the ground? Also, how many years should I wait before disturbing them again and putting them in a permanent location?

Thanks for any info anyone can offer.
