I am new to gardening as I have lived in terraced houses for years. Now I have a huge garden that takes up all my spare time. I need lots of help!
@SikoMa @gjones my #avacado on the left has finally got a root starting. It looks a bit rude! 😁 The one on the right has just taken off the last 2 weeks and is growing leaves and more roots. Patience! 😁😁😁
Our patience ran out so we put the seeds in a pot of dirt and now they're both growing. Just starting to get leaves!
Yay! @gjones I guess they will grow any way you do it! 😁🌱
@SikoMa and @gjones My #avocado seed is finally #sprouting on top. I have another one, different species that is doing nothing.
Is the one that hasn't sprouted an organic variety?
I don't think so @KariSamuel It was just a different shape and darker green
@KariSamuel I just like them so I don't look at the names. I will now. 😊
Nice big root! So how long did it take from when you put it in the glass of water? Ours looks to be the same shape as yours but nothing's happening yet!
@gjones I think I planted it before Christmas. I posted it before when the root was tiny.
Yes went back in your posts and it says 14 weeks ago! Guess we have to be more patient as we only started ours on Jan 11th. Our first try produced nothing!
Yes @gjones Patience 😃
Wow! Mine never looked this good. Had a few spider web roots, but nothing this substantial😩😬. Is this in full sun?
@SikoMa It is on a window ledge North facing. My friend had one that didn't make it in a very bright hot window. 🤔
@gjones #success this is the one I started a few weeks ago and now you can see the root growing. Have you tried it yet? 😊
Yes started it 12 days ago. No roots yet. We didn't peel ours. Should we have?
Yes. I think it works better but just wait and see. @gjones
How is it doing now?
The root is around 3 inches long but no top yet Dar @SikoMa Sometimes it takes ages. 😊
Thank you Linda. You definitely need an abundance of patience with gardening. 😩
Yes. Can't rush anything. Have a good day. I'm off to bed soon. 😌
Starting a new avocado!
I've try'd this so many times 😥
I have 2 growing good so decided to try again. They like my kitchen window @hagar.
I hope you have better luck than me😳
Try again @SikoMa. It will work. Peal the seed first. 🌱
So you take the fruit off the avocado, then do you wash and dry the seed? Or do you peel it right away and set it in the glass of water? We'd like to try it!
@gjones I peal it and wash it straight away and put it in the water. Some grow in a few weeks and some after 6 weeks. All different. Good luck. 🌴🍈
Thanks, we'll give it a try!
