I love getting to share it!! I will definitely do updates!!I'm really happy to see those pics. I hope we get further updates on their health and your plans for where they go to.
Remember, the best time to transplant a tree is where there are no leaves on it.
That is pretty cool!So I thought I'd share my first attempt with trees!
My grandma lives on property that has been in our family for a long time. In the back is what used to be the second pasture for the sheep. We would actually herd them there from down at the farm that was my great grandparents. Now that there are no sheep it's grown up quite a bit. Grandma said that there was a few Buckeye trees back there but now only 2 remain and she's afraid they won't last much longer, so I decided I was going to try and preserve them by trying to grow and replant them with no idea what I was doing lol.

So last year I gathered nuts and Googled the best I could as what to do. It was quite hard to find the information I needed, but saw they needed to be stratified first and you could do it two ways. In buckets outside or in the fridge so I tried both. After not seeing any signs I kinda gave up. Then one day I was cleaning my fridge and saw they had sprouted!!! I was so excited and got to planting them! I kept these inside and so far so good I think lol!

My outdoor ones were showing no signs they had took. So again I just gave up on those. Until I was working outside and just peeked in and saw sprouts!! And I could not be more excited!!

It's reminded me that all things work in their own time, and to not give up! I still have a long way to go and I know lots could go wrong in the process but I'm so hopeful now! I'm also so thankful for the people I've found along the way to help with all the questions ( because I've had lots ) because as I said finding information on growing Buckeyes has proven difficult.
If you've made it this far thank you for sharing my journey!
Aye, there's the rub, ain't it?I love getting to share it!! I will definitely do updates!!
So I need to transplant in the fall after the leaves fall off?
