Hi Taras, 7 would be heaps!!! Just if you have them in one big pot leave them for the first year, otherwise, put each one in a pot and look after them. They will loose their leaves in winter, but come spring you should see some sprouting. I have had many seedlings in my garden underneath and everywhere else for that matter from my Catalpa trees. In the end I had to pull them out anyway. But I ended up having about 7 huge catalpa trees. They like pruning every now and then, every 3 years I would say, to keep them strong and bushy. I think they are one of the most attractive and shady trees I can think of. Right at this time they are flowering in the South and it's pleasing for the eye and nose.
You don't want any more than 7 trees, do you have a huge garden???
