Are my almond trees dead?

Botch | Apr 23, 2009 01:08 PM

I planted 4 almond trees almost 2 months back. These were the navelets jobs, no leaves, just a bunch of twigs and a 4ft stem in a plastic bag.

Well, I planted them after about a week. Maybe I waited too long, but they were in their sealed root bags the whole time. Planted em in 50/50 compost/local soil, wet em down. Now, 2 months later, nothing. 2 of them have turned from mostly redish to greenish/redish bark, but still no leaves anywhere.

time to give up?
