Hi Russel,

Micheal Dirr says to check Hort Science 23:777 (1988) for info about seed propagation, but all the other oaks need roughly 30-45 days in a moist substrate (peat or sand) at about 40 degrees F. If you have enough seeds, try that with a few and try direct sowing (a little over an inch deep) outside (now) with a few others. I'm assuming that you are in a location where they will survive (zone 7-10), so direct sowing will give the seeds the typical pre-treatment found in nature. If you are near a university, look up the HortScience article. Good luck,

Lisa in Mpls
