• Trees from seed, need to mimic nature

    Some plants are prolific; some are not.  
    Dandelion seeds float through the air and disperse far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk; and you can just walk past some hairy cress and millions of seeds burst forth from the draft.   
    Woody plants seem to be a bit more elusive. I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone or an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath the canopy.
