I just started several exciting adventures in zone 6a&b (kinda in the middle). Looking forward to learning, collecting ideas, and trying new things.

I got too impatient and got the seed off but I might have torn a bit of the leaf. It still looks ok so far so maybe it will survive 🙂🍎💕 #apple #appletree #seedling

My #apple #seedling is struggling. Do I help it or leave it?

If you think it needs help, gently with your nails pry the seed casing open. Don’t try to pull it off, try to get the casing to snap in half then lift the halves away. After that, check/watch to see if the two leaves are stuck together. There sometimes will be with a papery, nearly invisible membrane that when dry, is almost like glue. And just know that you may break it. But if it is stuck in there, its not going to make it anyway, so you can say you tried. 🍀

@heelerpup I'm nervous that I'll break it, but I might give it a try. Right now I'm just trying to keep the seed wet and giving it light. Thanks for the advice 💕

The leaves inside look like they’re wrinkled, so if it is stuck, I think that’s why. But it looks like it might do it on it’s own. I would also make sure it’s warmer to encourage quicker growth till it pops off too. Good luck! 🍀 I’m probably going to start my seeds tonight myself 😯

@heelerpup I tried to help it, but the shell is too slippery. I stopped so I wouldn't cause more damage. Hopefully, it will be ok. Best of luck with yours 🙂
