I've recently dug up some small oaks from a friend's woods (they were on the outer edge in mostly shade). I'm confident I did some unintentional root damage while digging them up (at least the largest of the three).
I've put them in pots because the place where I'm going to eventually plant them doesn't have easy access to water.
Location: Ohio, US
Date: Early August
Current Temp: ~75-90 degrees F in day, 70-75 at night.
How much water do I give them?
Do I keep them soaked? Do I only water them every few days? Once a week?
How much light do I give them?
Should I keep them shaded, and slowly work them into the sun over a few weeks? Or put them out in the sun immediately?
Is there anything else I should be doing...?
...to attempt to keep them alive for now until I can plant them at a later time?
