Beautiful Oak colours

Oak are one of my favourite species to tree. Be it natural in the landscape or worked as Bonsai. The Colours are exceptional during its break out into leaf!
This year doesn’t disappoint …

    Hi Bry
    On a resent trip to Japan I collected some oak seeds or nuts from an oak tree with smaller leaves. My question to you Bry is how do you scarify them. Do you soak them do you crack them or do you just plant them as is. We here on the west coast of Canada are weeks ahead of you with the weather. My oak bonsai already needs to be cut back to form as it already has 8 inches of growth.
    Peace

      Hi Brian;
      When I collected my Acorns to get them to germinate I also looked and asked a few questions. I also tried a trial and error approach. Out of 20 I had a return of 17!
      Best result is to wait for the end cap/cup to fall off. Lay the seed 2″ under the soil on its side. The tap root comes out at the base of the egg shape and down. Sew the acorns autumn and wait. Damp soil a winter and you should see something mid summer’iah as it breaks the soil.
      Hope that helps…
      Bryan

    Hi Bry
    I sent you a series of pictures of an oak tree before and after and I was wondering if they made it to you. Please reply with a yes or no. My iPad skills are very limited and
    When and if it works I am still amazed.
    Have patience
