[nafex] Want to buy sweet acorns

I planted about 50 assorted oak seedlings two years ago.  The tap
roots were cut at 4" to 6" long.  The stems were 18" to 24" long.
They broke bud and clung to life through the summer (it was a wet
summer).  Four of the original 50 seedlings survived the winter.  So I
am a little disenchanted with planting seedling oaks, even though the
"root" cause of mortality was inadequate roots.

Name of nurseryman is intentionally withheld as I believe they are
generally reputable.
