It's easier to let the squirrels plant the nuts, though they won't put them in neat rows. I have walnuts and filberts coming up all over the yard and also in small pots, all planted by absent-minded squirrels.

You could just leave a pile of nuts in one corner of the field, and let them go to it.

More on topic: I bottle a lot of apricots and peaches each year and dump the pits in the vegetable garden. I get germination from peaches, though not a high % considering the number of seeds. I don't get any apricots.

There is a technique for planting nuts that the squirrels can't dig up.
