Thanks for the tip on that, probably the best way to establish oaks is finding the natural ones and taking care of them.
Has anyone tried transplanting newly sprouted oaks that had come out naturally? I can think of a few that have come up this spring in fire break lanes that get mowed annually. What have been the sucesses or failures?
Letemgrow: Where do you get all of those cheaper plastic pots? Is there a place that sells them in bulk, reasonably priced? I have 100+, but would like to order some more, and most nurseries, chain stores do not carry them.
Letemgrow: I usually only pot seedlings from spring until fall, you don't think a 2 gallon pot would work for that? It seems to have worked for me in the past, but maybe I am missing something.
C-mon!! What are you feedin' those things!
Oaks on steroids! This year has been one of the best for growing oaks. We have had consistent rains of 1-2 inches one week, 2-3 inches the next, then some nice sunny days. Perfect year for growing oaks, much better than the previous 4-5 years, which had terrible dry stretches that killed a lot of my young oak trees!
