I've got some thornless honeylocust seeds (about 20). They've been stratified, and I'm ready to plant, but I'm not sure what the best approach is. I haven't started trees from seed before.
- Will they work in soil blocks? 2" or 4" to start?
- Is a 2x11x22" flat too shallow? I'm not sure how quickly the roots will go down deep.
- I've got plenty of milk cartons, some window box planters, various other containers that might work.
It will be 8-10 weeks before I can transplant them outside. I'm assuming that I should grow them for a year in a protected space, so I'm planning on putting them about 1-2' apart in a nursery bed. What makes a good tree nursery bed (soil, location, etc)? Is this plan a reasonable approach?
