Planting Trees from Nuts and Seeds
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.
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.
