Subject: RE: BS: Signs of Autumn
Acorns are everywhere and a neighbour with a crab-apple tree has given me some apples, as every year; normally I make apple jelly and share it with her half-and-half, but I'm not well enough yet, so I've been splitting the crabs and taking out the two seeds in the centre of each, and have scattered them onto damp tissue paper with a sprinkle of cinnamon and put them in a Ziplok bag in the fridge. However, it's been two weeks and only one of the seeds has put out a tentative root under this stratification… I'm hoping to have a family of baby crab-apple trees to spread around the neighbourhood, though.
