How long does it take conkers to sprout if planted in a pot? Should they be left where the rain falls on them? Very heavy rain today and they are wet rather than just moist, is that OK?

I did this also and they are beginning to sprout. Should they be moved to a seedling compost. i cannot recall what I panted them in, just some general compost I expect

Also I have a small conker tree in a pot someone gave me and it is starting to bud. It is aboit a foot tall. What would I put in if i move it to a nicer pot John Innes 3 be OK? And fertiliser?

any tree should be happen enough in ordinary garden soil, i'd say. your main problem is where to put a tree which will grow as big as it will.

so long as you keep it watered, you will eventually have to plant it out as it will get too big. unless you Bonsai it.
