- Jun 25, 2005Greetings for jack pine:
and from pfaf database:
Seed - best sown as soon as it is harvested in autumn
in a cold frame. Germinates in late winter or
spring. Stored seed should be pre-soaked in warm water
for 48 hours and then given 2 weeks warm followed by 3
- 4 months cold stratification. Germinates in 1 -
6 months at 20°c. When large enough to handle,
prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow
them on in a cold frame or sheltered place outdoors
for their first winter. Plant them out into their
permanent positions in late spring or early summer[K].

Thank you, Bob. I'm just discovering permaculture
(incl. environmental horticulture).
I planted three chestnut seedlings in April but they
didn't take. I'm told the soil was too cold. I also
didn't harden them enough, I suspect.
April is early , at least here, we plant usually, late
May or early June.
I will look for a local source of seedlings for beaked
hazel and jack pine, unless they can be started from
