Q.

How do I Grow an Oak Tree From Sapling?

Zone 48821 | GardeningNoob added on April 26, 2017 | Answered

Yesterday at work I was given an oak tree sapling (shown in photo next to 18 inch ruler) and I was wondering what steps are involved to grow it in a vase for a few years then plant it in the ground. (I'll be moving in a few years and I don't want to plant it until I'm at my permanent house.) So my questions are: How much sun will it need? And what do I need to do for winter while its still in it pot? I'm kinda lost here and Google has been little help so thanks for any answers!

You would need to plant out the seedling, though you could place it into a nursery pot for temporary growing.
