    Hy!

    Im new on this forum so sorry on my english.
    I am a student and im preparing my diploma about Oaks...

    Now i have two questions that i couldnt find about transplateing young oak.
    So can somebody please help me and answer it to me.

    Questions:

    1. When is the right time to transplate the 3-month old oak (q.rubra,q.robur,q.petrae) ?

    2. Do the plants (oak) have to have the real leafs or germinated leafs ?


    Im talking about for young oaks.


    Best regards,
    Cvetka

    Moving when not in leaf easiest. However, young plants in seed pots should not be allowed to have their tap roots circle around or form a "j" from being left in pots too long.

    Wait untill you get a couple of sets of "true leaves", the stage of seed leaf (codyledon emergence) is too early, but I do agree with Ron, don't wait too long if you want to grow ulitmately healthy specimens. Janet

    Please excuse my spelling mistake (cotyledon). Janet
