5 year old buck +
I have started DCO's from seed the last couple years and haven't had much success, I keep them in the fridge in ziplock bags with peet moss over the winter just like I have with all the other acorns. The germination on these isn't very high even though they all float tested fine. I checked some of the ones I planted last year in tubes and they are still alive but haven't put on much growth, they are maybe 8-10" tall. Ithe ones I have in rootmaker trays this year are maybe 4-6". I remember reading that they are slow growers the first year but take off after that. What has been your experiences with DCO's?
