I live in the border between Netherlands and Germany. Near Enschede. Zone 6. Winters up to -23c. (Though this is rare. Normal winters we see peaks of -10 to -15c. In the 8 years I live here, I have only had -20 in 2 winters, although one winter we had this for 2 weeks, almost every night..

I found that in the climate I live the trees developing trunks also potted, I noticed an average grow of 5mm per trunk a year on almost all my Juniper specimen.
I agree that planting it into still will get you there faster, but I had some bad luck digging them out, some trees have suffered a lot, no matter how careful I was. It may be the technical aspect or just the way these trees react in my part of the world. I discuss it a lot with my Indonesian friends, they make the same experiences. Not to forget the growing season here is all year around.
