Fruit trees grown at our nursery in eastern Virginia break dormancy by mid-March. In early springs, this may occur even earlier. We recommend that customers take delivery of their fruit trees as early as possible. After trees break dormancy, their roots are very susceptible to freeze injury and they should be protected after shipment when sub-freezing temperatures are expected.
