Agree with fidget. The suppliers are a bit naughty sending bare root trees out so late and I have a couple of 'Lucky Red' bare root magnolias sent about then which are still alive (thumbnail test as above) but are still dormant. I suspect they were kept in cold storage. If so, they will just be behind and as long as regularly watered should wake up eventually.
