Low Cost TREE Seed PLANTING with Cardboard Cylinder. Previously we have experimented with other materials like the besser block. This is now our 3rd Winter of planting Cork Oak + English Oak direct into prepared tree hole. Other materials are useful but redundant with cardboard simply because you can let the cardboard break down + not disturb the emerging seedling. THIS METHOD WORKS + WORKS WELL yet is Only Part of the STORY.  Subscribe for Regular UPDATES and Access all New Research Material.

BESSER BLOCK is placed on top of acorn seed already placed into a prepared tree hole. Oaks will emerge from August Sept onwards – so we use wood shavings or a cap to protect seedlings from frost. Acorns are capped in ground with sand to provide ease of emergence. Deep planting to 150 mm is recommended.

Besser Block with acorns in place filled with wood shavings. Best not to bury any part of block as you might disturb roots when lifting block off. Cardboard Tubes are the better option to date for this reason.

Not all Tree Seed is suited to direct planting = but some is better suited as seedlings can develop deep tap roots before emergence. BECOME a SUBSCRIBER for Access to All New UPDATES >< See other tree seed planting results.  (OPT OUT at any Time)
