WE CAN SOW OAKS NOW

How to sow oak:

In open ground (on site or in the nursery), dig the soil to a depth of 30 cm, crumble well and level it; potted, fill them.
Lightly spray the oil tassels to deter rodents from consuming them.
Place the acorns to a depth of between 5 and 6 cm.

Spacers of 30 cm for a seedling, 15 cm on the row in the nursery. Only put one acorn per pot, so it would be difficult to divide the seedlings without damaging the roots.

Locate seedling sites in the ground with bamboos.
Water moderately to prevent rotting of the acorns.

After sowing the oak:
Carefully remove weeds that sprout around the seedlings. If birds or mammals can eat young shoots, protect with a net or net.
For sowing usually mixed soil garden soil and drainage material. The acorns are planted either horizontally, or with the tip down (where the root comes out) and the head (where there is the dome that covers it) upwards. Just cover them a little with soil. Therefore, the young shoot of the tree should not be in the shade of large trees or grass. You should regularly remove weeds, weed out the growing area of ​​the seedling. Additional moisture, fertilizing is necessary in the early years and in the dry season. It is necessary to constantly fluff the soil. In addition, it is important to prevent any diseases of the young shoot.
Oak is a slowly growing plant. Don't expect quick results and expect to harvest acorns in a year or two.
The specified plant reaches the height of a medium-sized tree at the age of 9-10 years. In another ten years the first fruits could appear. Although, as a rule, fruiting occurs at the age of 40-45 years. But even at this age, it is not worth waiting for acorns every season. The crop appears every 4 years. Although a sprout grown in a pot develops faster, such a tree will die faster. This is due to the improper development of the rhizome in a pot. Therefore, if you want to lay a centuries-old garden, it is better to grow an oak from an acorn.
