tree seeds - slacking off?
Finally having some acreage to plant, I sowed tree seeds for the first time last year. Apart from Siberian Elms, laburnum and a couple of small-leaf limes, nothing else has appeared in my pots.....while the many, many perennials are germinating on a daily basis. True, it has been a mild winter so stratification might have been tricky, but they have been kept in deep pots, outside all winter. Am I being a bit impatient? It has been a while since I felt such impending failure and my gardening self-esteem is suffering - reassure me if you can.....the many acers, beech, hornbeam, alders, liquidamber, piceas. yews, oaks, and even sequoias....are not a totally lost cause.....yet.
