I started some Dunstans from seed around mid December. They are growing like weeds.

I would love to do this. Where do you get the seeds and can you tell us more about how you did it.

Looks good! Are you going to direct plant or summer them in pots?

The young trees are looking great! Here's a pic of a few of their 7 week old siblings. Sure hope we continue seeing great results.

I got them off EBay by the pound.

I take two deep plastic totes from walmart that fit one inside the other. The one that is in the inside tote I drill several 1/8" holes in to let water drain into the bottom tote. I them fill the inside tote with pro-mix potting mix, and press the seed in until they are just covered with soil. I water them about every other week.

Unless they get really big, I will take the inter tote out of the other tote, and keep them in it until next Feb. and them pot them in 3 gal. Root Trapper II pots for a year or two.

Looks like your are doing really good. I think most of mine were planted about a month before yours. I bet you growing room is warmer than mine. Mine stays around 60 to 65 most of the time.

Yes Sir, You are correct. This is a heavily insulated office out in my shop (AKA Man-cave). I keep the temperature between 68 - 74. My three plant lights run 18 hrs each day.

I should lower the temperature to slow the tree growth a bit. As you can see,I'm quickly running out of space. I will not be able to move the trees outside for another 5 - 6 weeks.

Did you notice the short white oak trees in the bottom right side of the image? The Dunstans absolutely tripled the White Oak's initial growth rate. I won't know until transplanting, but I assume the oak trees will have better root development.
