Any thoughts, observations about hybrid oaks?
I would love some pleaseI direct seeded several of those possible Bur x English crosses myself but my life right now is pretty crazy and I haven’t even been around to check on them. I got my RM18’s cleaned out in the last couple days and am probably going to start some of them in the RM’s this weekend. Guys I should have no issue securing another batch of them this fall for anyone wanting some to try some next spring.
Here's a schuette's shooting out of a 5' tube. Second year in the ground.No acorns from mine yet, but I'm real happy with the growth from two hybrids. Schuette's, which is Swamp white x Bur and Riparian Oak which is a cross between Northern red and Shumard. Besides English oak, these have been my favorites out of about 10 different varieties that I've planted. I do have high hopes for a possible hybrid "Heritage oak" Bur x English. I received the acorns from b116757 last fall. The seedlings out grew everything else that I started this spring. Also, the place I got the Riparian from gave me a couple Pin x Nuttall crosses to try. That sounds interesting and should be a late dropper.
