I just joined this community, I love to grow all sorts of plants but I have trouble getting seeds to grow into healthy plants.
Here's my problem:
I'm trying to grow orange trees straight from the seeds *as in the ones I have taken from oranges*
I have grown apple trees from the seeds taken from my apples no problem, but I'm having difficulty getting the orange seeds to bud.
My sister and I have fantasized about having our own little citrus gardens, so I figured since I'm moving out this summer I should leave her a little something to laugh about. I'm starting with oranges, but they're proving difficult
Has anyone done anything similar to this? any conditions that should be met?
*note, I have soaked them in water and peeled off the outer casing (as you must do with apple seeds) and they have been soaking and/or kept in water-soaked-paper towel for the past few weeks, I think I see a little growth but it's still IN the seed itself*
Any help at all would be appreciated
