From little acorns………

First acorns on the Oaks.

Some years ago we picked some acorns from the City Park in Örebro; these we planted and the resulting oak trees are nearly 8 metres tall and producing their own acorns.

Over 20 years ago we also collected some acorns from a Turkish Oak Quercus cerris in a park in Bexley Heath, London. We planted them in pots and brought one of them with us to Sweden, it’s found it hard going here in Sweden and is still only 140cm tall.
