    a day full of surpises

    i was going to get some soil out of my compost for two new plants i bought today(one being a hibiscus) so im digging it up and i look and i see many many sprouts and seedlings. im thinking to my self what kind of plants could these be, there not weeds. i examine the seedlings and they have these seeds on them, again i say to my self what the hell are all these. then it hits me these seeds look like apple seeds(i eat about 2 apples a day and throw the left over in the compost). i have about 20 apple tree seedlings right now! how cool is that?

    these seedlings are going to grow big and strong tree's

    That's a great find. I hove hibiscus plants. I would love to see some pictures if you have several (and even if you only have the new one!).

    Good luck with the apple trees. I hope they are green apples!

    Hibiscus, along with the Canna, are awesome plants. They really look very exotic, but don't mind zone 8 one bit!

    I can see all of you in the north growling at your screens when you get to 'Zone 8 one bit!" hehe.

    The apples from seed-grown apples don't tend to be very good, but apples are easy to graft. Can those seedling grow where they are for the rest of the year or is there a better (sunnier) place you can put them? I don't grow apples anymore, so can't send you scionwood, but you should be able to buy/beg or trade for what you need and then do some grafting next year, when those seedlings are the right size.
