Can You Jump Start A Battery That Has Been Removed From A Car

I just recently removed the battery from my car as the car has been garaged for some time (waiting on a new paint job). Anyways I removed the battery from the car yesterday and went to put it on a trickle charge and come to find out that the charger won’t make a connection to the battery because it has less than 1% charge left in it. I know it sounds stupid but I’m not well versed in the automotive field. Can I go about charging a car battery that has been removed from my car using jumper cables with the help of our other vehicle? As in putting the battery on the ground, hooking the cables up and then leaving the booster car on for a few minutes to charge it up so I can have some juice in it to get a trickle charge running when I bring it into the basement to charge it. Now if this is not even an option please just tell me that and don’t be a a-hole about it. I know it sounds stupid but at least I wanted to make sure before I went and did this.
Let me add that this battery has been jump started just a few times as the car has been in storage for quite some time. It’s a pretty new battery and hasn’t really been used at all. Just the occasional jump start when my car losses juice.
Also I know jump starting isn’t a good thing to be doing very often. And I don’t. Only whenever it really needed it and I needed to move my car.
