Acorns are shipped in various bags (labeled) with a moistened soil mixture.
Various species (the species from Southern Europe, North America, Asia, Central Europe) must first be stratified for germination. Best to store very cool in moistened sand for 4-5 weeks (in the refrigerator),
if necessary, leave outside in the frost for a few nights (or even a few weeks). The so-called “stratification” breaks down germination inhibitors.
Important 1: Please check regularly for the seedlings. Once they germinate, in any case, do not expose them to frost (!).
Important 2: Even with these species there are “outliers”. It is always possible that individual acorns of these species germinate already in the mail, or after a few days in the refrigerator.

The acorns from Mexico are about to germinate.
Best placed indoors (temperatures above 0 degrees, like 17,18,19 degrees) in a slightly damp soil mixture on the windowsill.
It is often helpful to cover the planters with a semi-transparent paper (parchment paper, baking paper) so that the temperatures rise a bit when the sun is shining.

Attention: Collected acorns NEVER germinate 100% (!). As a rule, germination of 70%-80% can be expected.
Especially for species from North America, Southern Europe, Asia, Central Europe, it may take several months (sometimes even 4 or 5) to germinate.

Various information about oak species can be found on the Internet (for example, on the site http://quercus.guru).
In principle, shipping to non-EU countries is also possible (unfortunately very expensive due to a required “Phytosanitaire certificate”). For this, please contact us directly. Other oak species and other seeds can also be found at http://quercus.guru. Please store acorns away from children (risk of ingestion).
