Apricot tree grown from seed is producing its first flowers! Only two buds but next year should be great 🙂 #apricot #spring #sun #flowers #fruit

It’s been a while since my last Apricot tree update but it’s here! Alive and well and in the ground. It’s going to face its first outdoor winter this year so fingers crossed 🤞 #apricot #tree #summer #seed

Hello again! Here with the first Apricot update of 2019! I’ve finally planted the Apricot tree in its permanent spot in the garden. Fingers crossed it blooms 🤞I can’t believe this time last year this tree was just a tiny seed! Here’s to #2019! #Apricot #Spring #Sunshine

What a journey we’ve had this year! From a struggling rotting seed to a beautiful strong Apricot tree. It’s done growing this year and I’ve brought it inside the shed to hibernate for winter. Let’s hope it perks up again in spring for planting, fingers crossed 🤞 Until then, Happy Halloween 👻

Yet again another monthly update on my Apricot. Phenomenal progress, it’s pretty much a tree now! Amazed at how quickly apricot plants grow, the roots are sticking out of the bottom so I will need to repot soon. #apricot #fruit

Another monthly update on my Apricot plant and wow has it grown! There was an accident where it fell from an elevated place and the pot broke. Also had to cut a small branch as it was damaged from the fall. But this Apricot is growing amazingly well! I need to repot! #apricot #fruit #summer

@bluefox23 it’s incredible how fast the Apricot grows, I’m looking forward to planting it in the ground next year

Will you need to overwinter it or will it be ok outside during winter. 😊

@bluefox23 For this winter I’ll be keeping it in our shed away from the frost. I’ve researched into Apricots and fortunately they can survive and grow outdoors with the right amount of care.

Another month another update! What an amazing month it’s been for the Apricot seedling, almost doubled its size, side shoots, it’s looking beautiful! #apricot #seedling #summer #sun #fruit

It’s been a month already since my last update on the Apricot seedling, boy does time fly! The plant is doing very well, I’m so pleased! 😁 #Apricot #fruit #plant #seedling #spring

Another 10 days, another update on my Apricot seedling. Leaves have started to become bigger, they look droopy but I think it’s like that naturally for apricots? Looking wonderful nonetheless! I’ll start doing monthly updates now because it’ll get to the point where you can’t see much difference if I upload every 10 days 😄 #spring #fruit #apricot #seedling

It’s been another 10 days since I updated about the once-struggling apricot seedling. Safe to say it’s going quite alright! #apricot #fruit #seedling #spring

Desperately trying to keep this apricot seedling alive! Ate a few apricots last summer and this is the only one to have sprouted, but it’s been constantly attacked by mould and fungus! I’ve kept cleaning it off, waiting until the seedling is established. It is growing a root and the seedling is appearing a little bit there, hang on! #fruit #seed #apricot #mould #PrayForApricot
