I have a relative that has found out about my desire to grow locust trees from seeds (so far, so good!). They have asked if I can grow some seedlings from hemlock seeds. I told them I would give it a shot. I recently had to have an evergreen cut down, so I would also not mind growing one for myself also. Most of what I have found on the web leads one to believe that these seeds should be planted outdoors. Has anyone ever tried growing one of these in a pot until it is ready for planting outdoors?

Maybe with a hemlock it does not matter much, but I figure if I am trying to grow them over the winter that they might do better in a better-controlled environment.

P.S. Most of the sites indicated that one might be crazy to grow them from seed when they are easily purchased, and maybe I am!
 
Why am I so drawn to cherry pie? I can't seem to stop. Save me tiny ad!
