To get started you'll need:
An acorn (you can find these under oak trees)
A small pot or cup
A sunny windowsill
Let’s get planting!
Find a clean, small pot or cup with holes at the bottom for water to drain
Fill the pot with potting soil, leaving a little space at the top
Gently push the acorn into the soil, pointy side up. Just a little bit, not too deep!
Use a little water to make the soil damp but not too wet
Put your pot near a sunny window. Acorns love sunlight!
Water regularly to keep the soil damp
Check your acorn every day. It might take a while to sprout
