Saplings

Recommended Posts

Here's just a few of the Beech saplings that I've re-potted, after they germinated. The Beech mast was gathered from trees that are well over 150 years old and still going strong. I've tried growing them many times without success, but for some reason this time, 90% have germinated. I've also got approx' 100 Oak, some American Red Oak and Horse Chestnut. They will be allowed to gain more root growth before moving on.

Well whatever you have done differently certainly seems to have worked.

Well done

That's just it, I didn't do anything different. I'm pleased with the results though, and will try again later in the year.

Might seem a daft question but did you just pull the 'tabs' off the cone and plant them....I've planted quite a few bare rooted trees but fancy doing them from seeds....especially silver birch and pine ...atb...misser

Left the cones on the window sill , opened up and dropped the seeds , bit like sycamore helicopters , just planted them, and a couple of months later , sprouted !

Looking a little sorry for themselves after Royal Mail messed them round but watered now and I’m sure will bounce back.

I do hope they fully recover. As long as the roots can still absorb water, they should be fine. And shame on Royal Mail.

Pity Mr C P and is mates do not see what some of the members of PW do to help the countryside

Totally agree. Personally, during the past 16 years, I have grown and forwarded on, at least 1000 various saplings.
