I would except I did that last year with lilacs and an apple tree and had a 
terrible time with powdery mildew, lack of light and low humidity.  I really 
hope to have that sunroom added on this year so this won't be a problem next 
year.  (I know I said that last year, for those who will remember, I have 1/2 a 
new kitchen instead! :-D )  Of course... I could stop buying plants I don't have 
time or space to plant... Nah!!!
