Growing trees

Hello dear gardeners,

I don't exactly have a green thumb when it comes to gardening apart from my little basil and parsley plants I grow every now and then. 

I've picked up some tiny sprouts of trees today in the wood intrigued to grow them and one day plant them in my future garden.

Now I haven't identified the tiny plants yet (and some might not even be in fact trees) but I was wondering if anyone had some tips of what they might need? I just got them in small pots for now with some soil, I will get bigger ones if they grow. I've given them some banana too!?

Any tips and tricks how to keep my trees alive, please let me know 😊 I really want to learn about gardening, so any tips (even for my herbs would be great)

    all plants are different, I think you'll need an ID before cultural requirements

    You could post a photo on this thread for an ID.
