I've grown a lemon, orange and apple seedling from a pip during the March lockdown last year. They're still tiny 😅

The lemon seedlings takes a long time to grow from a seed.

😂😂👍🏻 It's a fun little project, isn't it? I tried a plum seed as well. You're supposed to keep it in a fridge to give a period of cold temperatures and mine turned mouldy. My dad gave me some tips on getting plum seeds to germinate so I'm going to give it another go.

@ublaszko I had success with putting the seed in a pot with damp peat moss and tieing a plastic bag around it. Put it all the way back in the fridge for a few months and you’ll see some growth. I had success with peach pits and cherry pits as well using this method.

Thanks, sounds good but I've gone peat-free since last year. My dad said to put a plum seed in a jar half filled with compost and place the jar in the fridge for 6 weeks. Open the jar once a week to let some air in. @rudester1

Good luck. Once it gets going, it'll grow fast!
