Hortiscope: Use organic mulch or peat moss for plum trees

Q: I am trying to gather some information on planting a plum tree. This past summer, I took two healthy plum shoots from an heirloom plum tree on my uncle’s farm in West Virginia. I took them home with me to Tennessee and planted them in pots using a mixture of Miracle-Gro, manure and compost. What is the proper way to plant them outside?
