Every year I collect acorns from the local moors, I plant them, nurture them for a couple of years then guerrilla plant them in public places like the
coast path, and keep a few to bonsai them for family and friends. I love oaks, they are slow growers and face loads of challenges so I like to help
them out in my wild green spaces for the future.
Anyway, out of the 30 or so who have grown into baby saplings I have an imposter!
When I planted the acorns last year they were all together in the ground until Spring when I seperated them, but among the lil trees was this chap
hiding in plain sight:
...I am sure I only planted the acorns I collected so it could have found its way into the ground
outside of any influence from me. That said it was healthy looking so I transferred it to its own pot as staying there for the rest of it's life was
not an option.
I've searched tree recognition sites but I can't be sure at all so I'm asking and hoping can anyone recognise the leaves and tell me what this
little chap will grow into.
Once I know I'll be able to decide either where best to plant it, or if I would like to bonsai it instead.
Thanks in advance, any and all general tree growing/bonsai/giving back to nature replies welcome here, so even if you can't help with recognition but
the broader subject interests please do have a chat.
