Planting Mimosa tree seedlings

Posted by Karen , May 11,2003,17:40       Forum

Last fall I collected a few mimosa tree seed pods, wintered them over in a cool dry place, and recently got the seeds out of the pods and planted them in a seed box. They have now germinated and are approximately two inches high. My plan is to move the seedlings to a LARGE, deep planter pot until they get a few feet tall before planting them in the ground this fall after they go dormant. My question is: How tall should I let the seedlings get before I move them into the large pot? Any other tips on keeping them growing? I LOVE mimosa trees and am hoping to get at least one good plant going from this batch.
