I would like some advise on how to grow Oak Trees from an Acorn, what soil / compost pot size etc.

    Squirrels do it for me all the time.

    Take your acorn. Bury it a couple of inches deep in a pot of soil. When the roots fill the pot, plant in the soil in final position. watch it grow for the next 100 years or so. Don't plant within 30feet of a house.

    I spend more time pulling up squirrel planted ones.image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
