I have tried bare root, potted, long tap root pots, and seedlings. The problem with all of these options for plant material is that it is not the same as a tree that is planted from seed and is never moved. A tree that is seeded in place has a huge advantage in that it has its taproot intact, and it never had to go through transplant shock. The negative is that for certain seed like apples and pears, you will not get a true to type plant. If you plant a seed from a Gala Apple, the apple tree will not be a Gala.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/93717/direct-seeding-trees-and-shrubs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/93717/direct-seeding-trees-and-shrubs#comments What Should I Do?

Here are a few obvious points to understand about water:</p> <p class="rteindent1"><strong>&bull; Without water you die very quickly </strong><br /> Depending on your health and age, you will live for 5-7 days without clean water. You can live much longer without food.</p> <p class="rteindent1"><strong>&bull; Water is heavy and takes up a lot of space </strong><br /> A gallon of water weighs about 8.3 pounds. Water is not easy to transport because it is so heavy. That means your emergency water plan should account for that.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/93648/clean-water-emergency" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/93648/clean-water-emergency#comments What Should I Do?
