I seem to have an autumn obsession of needing to plant acorns, and last year 
was no different, as there were plenty about. I have tried for many years, 
utilising different planting techniques. The most successful has been using 
deep cells. Most years however, if I 'take my eye off the ball' something 
scuppers them, either drought, but particularly mice. So last year I was more 
organised and put a large sheet of glass over the tops, which was 
periodically removed for watering through the winter. As spring came this 
year, the little darlings ( about 200 of them) duly sprouted and they started 
pushing up against the glass. "Great" I thought; I've beaten the pesky 
vermin. Two days later they were all dug up and scattered on the floor, I 
suspect, by jackdaws or similar, seeking out the cotyledons. I'm left with 
about 10% that I could salvage off the floor in a fit-enough state to 
survive. Maybe next year  .  .  .

Jays likely as not as others have said. There are a good number of texts on 
how/why Jays bury acorns. The best recent description is in this (other 
suppliers are available) 
https://www.waterstones.com/book/wilding/isabella-tree/97815XXXXXXXX

Which goes into some detail re the germination of Oaks from Jay buried acorns 
and the way that the cotyledons are to a great extent sacrificial. They have 
even observed Jay beak marks on the stems of surviving seedlings.

Re the other tree nuts, probably due to that particular evolutionary 
specialism?

Little buggers. Did anyone see Primates, the best bit was the macacques 
slapping the squirrel. I could watch that on loop.

So what's planting my oaks? And why won't it plant hazels, chestnuts, walnuts 
or pine nuts?

Hi Bill, in general grays do do that; and take hazel whilst its still 
green, so much less viable.
Useless sodding creatures....

Somebody put me right on this please, but I thought Squirrels nibbled a bit 
off acorns to stop them germinating? Jays are better at acorn planting than 
squirrels?
