Aspens From Seed

billley added on July 11, 2017 | Answered

I want to plant aspen seeds, and I\'ve read they start best in moist, well drained soil, on north an east facing slopes. But how deep should the seeds be planted? Soin tamed down, raked over or left loose? Direct sun, shade or mixed? Does time of year make much difference? This site is basically forest where aspens grow naturally, lots of rock, buried and loose. There are many pines and firs so acid soil.
