Fine time for winter to show up!
I've bought some sets, as bump up out of little cells to get stronger root system going. NOT planted any in ground yet.
If you have~better tuck 'em in with shiver covers!

Amen~great advise Nat. We tucked all of ours in the house.  They were all on sale, but we held off planting for a few more weeks.  A friend called me and gave me a few plumb trees that sprouted up around her large one.  We still have them in buckets and still looking healthy so far.  That's the plum tree in the back, tallest plant on the table
