Growing Pecans from Seeds
A newbie needs some help please! I'm trying to raise my first trees from seed (Pecans), and I've done some research, but I seem to be finding conflicting data.
I've gathered my pecans, and prepared them two ways. One set I let dry, then i simply bagged them and put them in the fridge. The other set I soaked in water overnight, then bagged them with compost enriched mulch and put them in the fridge. I think I need to change the mulch out for peat moss. When should I put the seeds in planting cells? I'm planning on raising about 40 seedling pecans, and possibly a like number of native bald cypress (if I can find seeds), which stuewe & sons cells have you used? How wide/tall do the cells need to be? I intend to plant the seeldings next fall.
Also, I do know that the pecans seedlings may not produce for years and that I have no idea what the nut quality will be...I'm mainly doing it for shade and wildlife. I would greatly appreciate any help!
