The pips are sprouting

I am gathering quite a collection of potential fruit trees in my conservatory. Everything seems to be sprouting and pushing out roots or shoots.  I have a dozen dates that have pushed out shoots. It will be interesting to see if they all look the same when they start to put out leaves.  The pomegranates are all taking off and pushing out tiny shoots. The almonds have good strong roots and are now starting to show signs that a leaf is on its way. The oranges and lemons are coming along nicely but the limes and passion fruit seeds aren't showing anything yet... maybe they won't.

  1. You ability to grow anything amazes me! My mom is/was like that. I did not inherit that talent.

  2. Wow! Look at you. Well done, you and your green thumb.
