Fruit Trees from seed (of the more exotic form)

Posted: 23/08/2016 at 16:22

I had a forest of avocado one year after I spread the contents of the compost heap. 6inches tall in the first year from seed. Never seen again after winter. Easy to germinate, good fun, not a food crop

Can anyone tell me what this is please, and is it ok to eat?

the seedheads look like my Phytolacca but the leaves are a bit different, probably a different species or variety of.one.

All my sedums are perennial. There may be some annuals but I haven't seen any. All the common ones you see in garden centres are perennial

flowers? I haven't had any flowers. But I did cut mine back hoping to stimulate root and shoot growth. Probably due for another potting on as well, They're in 1L pots now.

and if that's a flower forming at the top, cut it off. Roots and leaves are what it needs at this stage

Growing roses

roses do have to be grafted or grown from cuttings to get the same cultivar (cultivated variety). I think if you get a named rose it will be the right one unless they get the labels mixed.


Cultivars from other plants have to be grown from cuttings, divided or grafted to get the same cultivar but they also produce seed. The plants grown from these seeds are not the same as the original plant. Even if they look very much like it they are still not the original cultivar and shouldn't be sold as such. But they are.
