I always direct sow my vegetables and herbs where they're going to grow to full height. For trees, I always sow one or more seeds into pots outside after the last chance of frost has passed, and this is whether I germinate them to sprout beforehand or not. I don't transplant trees until they've grown for three or four months. My experience with the trees is that I've grown Black Walnut trees from seeds (I only kept one as I intended to sell them locally), Apple (for rootstock), and Sand Plum.
