Nurturing seeds and watching them grow is rewarding and educational work.

You will need to learn a bit about the appropriate time for seeding. The time frame will vary by trees, with most plants take about 3-15 weeks to grow to the point of being able to be planted in the garden.

You should also research what kind of tree you are planting and how long it will take to plant it. It can be fun watching them grow and bloom once they are planted in the garden.
