Growing Tulip Poplar Trees
I have A tulip poplar tree cutting with a seed pod. How
can I start a new tree.
Simply plant the seeds in a garden area with adequate sun and in the spring
you should find a young seedling emerging. Do not plant the seeds in an
extremely wet area or they may rot before they can germinate in the spring.
You should be able to easily grow a tree from seed...I have found several
self-seeding in my foundation plantings from compost I brought from a
community compost area. (Locusts are another prominent tree species which I
have successfully grown while using community compost). You should not have
to resort to growing from a cutting of the species.
Good luck; thanks for using NEWTON!
