Planting Trees from Nuts and Seeds

October 1, 2013

When I shared my blog posting about saving Praying Mantis egg masses with my gardener friend who passed along the idea, Janis Steed told me that all you folks would love planting nuts, acorns and seeds to grow new trees.  She says this could be a cool kid/parent project.  She also said that last weekend she collected Hickory and Buckeye seeds near her home to plant this fall.

Janis sent along this picture of the Kentucky Coffee Tree seedlings she started from seed.

There is lots of info available when you do a search with key words like:  “starting trees from nuts and seeds”.  Here are a couple of links to info on this subject:  Ohio State; Iowa State.

If you have a wooded area available to you where you are allowed to dig tree seedlings, this is a good time of year to find and transplant young trees to an area in your yard where they will thrive.

This young Oak seedling is ready to be transplanted.
