Boer oak (Quercus macrocarpa)

Quercus macrocarpa (burr oak): Acorns are from a September 2023 collection in Canada (Manitoba). These are stored in a mixture of sand kept cool. Care is taken to ensure that only intact acorns (without worm bites, etc.) are shipped. A swimming test is also carried out for this purpose. Here you will find a lot of information about the Bur Oak.

The acorns are shipped in a bag with slightly moistened soil mixture. It is recommended to store them in a slightly wet soil mixture in the refrigerator for about 4 weeks before planting. Please keep acorns away from small children (risk of ingestion).

Bur oaks are soil tolerant, but they like weakly acidic soils best.
