#happinessis discovering that two of your #lemon-seeds have sprouted 💛💛 I’ve potted them up already as I couldn’t bear to wait until they put on more growth. I hope I won’t regret being so impatient! #greenhouse #justcantwait #mygardentoday 💚💛💚

I saw a young boy on Gardeners’ World showing how he put pips on damp kitchen paper, folded the paper up and then put it in a box. He kept the paper damp and eventually the pips began to sprout, so I gave it a try. I forgot to make a note of when I started mine off, but they took ages and I only got two out of eight! @italydiva 🤣😍
