Oak seedlings to find a home
Hi, I'm new here and I would like to ask for some advice please.
I was given six seed pods, from my niece, and she said it would be a miracle if they grew. Challenged with this I planted them in small pots and all six have begun their new life. Now, obviously, they cannot live with me so they are to be donated.
I have asked the Forestry Commission about them and they say they do not accept donations of seedlings due to possible bugs and diseases being introduced. They get their own supplies, of course, from nurseries. It is understandable that they have to be careful, however, I am sure that these trees will perform as normal.
So then, advice on whether anyone would want them please? They are from 2 to 8 inches in height and show roots in the bottom of their pots. It would be a shame to not let them grow on to be mature trees. I would not like to have to dispose of them.
Is there a home out there for them?
