More White Pine Seedlings

The white pine seeds I sowed last month have only sprouted four seedlings. I was hoping for a better sprouting rate than 20%. At least it’s better than the Korean Hornbeam seeds I sowed, which had a very sad 0%. The seedlings are now at a size that can be made into seedling cuttings.
