Myth of the Slow Growing Oak

(Click on image to enlarge)

Barely 2 months after planting English oak (Q. robur) acorns - not seedlings, but acorns - in 1 gallon pots and protecting with 30 inch tree tubes... after the 3rd coldest year in Minnesota history... they are now just 2 inches away from emerging from 30 inch tubes.

Guarantee they will be 5ft to 6ft tall by the end of next summer. So much for slow growing!
