At her summer home Twelve Oaks, Estrid Ericson came up with the idea of letting acorns sprout in a single small glass vase. The form was inspired by the classic acorn shape and she broadened the neck slightly so that the acorn could fit into place easily and take root.
Pick several acorns, perferbly in October, when they are in an ideal condition. Place the acrons in a bowl of water, and after 3 to 6 weeks, they should have strated to germinate. Fill the Acron vase with water and put your sprouting acron in it. After a further 3 to 6 weeks, a delicate Little oak seedling will sprout. Avoid direct Sunlight. Sun through glass may cause burn damage to adjacent Surfaces.
