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

Here is a link I found doing a google search:

Starting oaks in pots

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.
