Betula pendula 1000+ seeds – Silver Birch freshly harvested seed ready for planting now.These seeds will grow up to be large deciduous trees best to plant in pots I would plant 220 seeds in a 10 litre size pot with good soil based compost like John Innes no 1 or mix grit with multi purpose compost they do not need feeding until they start to grow as soon as first set of leaves appear then give a foilar feed. Leave in this pot for first season then repot the following Spring before they come into leaf. Grow on or you can plant straight out in the garden provided you mark the spot with a cane and tree protector to keep the young plant from getting damaged. Birchs are fast growing when young provided they are giving good shelter and fertiliser. Very easy tree to grow from seed. This pretty tree is often known as the “lady of the woods” and is planted in gardens for its graceful pendulous form. It has an attractive white bark with sharply cut diamond shaped leaves. Mature height: 20m x 10m, I send the seeds out in grip seal poly bags inside an envelope.
