Fruit trees are not only beautiful to look at, they give you food. Nothing you buy at the shops could come close to the fresh taste of fruit picked from your own tree!
If you’ve ever wanted to grow an apple tree, it’s not as hard as you might think. All you need to do is purchase an apple from the shops and you can get started!
Here is how to grow an apple tree from the seeds in your apple!
1. Remove seeds from the apple.
2. Place the seeds on a wet paper towel in an airtight container and place in the fridge for 2 weeks.
3. When the seeds have sprouted they can be planted into pots.

This is a great weekend or after school activity and the kids eat so many apples that we have plenty of seeds to try this. My kids love gardening and watching things grow, they’d love to see a big tree grow from their tiny seed.
