Hi I was recently at my 93 year old Grandmother's house cleaning it up so she could sell it.<br>
I took some acorns from the oak tree she planted when she was a young women.<br>
I want to plant them and kinda grow my own heirloom oaks from hers.<br>
The problem is I need to keep them in pots for 2 years as we are buying our own farm then.<br>
I have a nice basement with a warmer and a grow light.<br>
Can I go ahead and pop them in some nice big planters with some soil.<br>
Any info would help. I got a ton of them hoping that at least a couple would grow.<br>
Thanks

I don't see why not....we have volunteer oaks springing up all the time from our acorns and they don't seem to grow very quickly, so I don't think you'd have huge trees in two years' time.<br><br>
Here is a link I found doing a google search:<br><br><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/ca2/diablobonsai/oaks.html" target="_blank">Starting oaks in pots</a><br><br>
If you know what kind of oak it is you might want to run a google search, for ex. growing red oaks from acorns, and see if it comes up with more specific instructions.
