People have asked me how I germinated my apple seeds, on today's post I will explain how.
For me, the following method has worked wonderfully.
First, take the seeds of an apple(s) and place your seeds in a damp paper towel (not soaked), fold the paper towel covering your seeds. Place your damp paper towel in a plastic zip lock bag.
Place your plastic bag in the refrigerator; the best place would be the little cubicle on the side of the door of the fridge. It will take a couple of weeks before you start to see the seed(s) sprout. After your seeds have sprouted, they will look like this, perhaps smaller, I left them in longer.
When they have sprouted like the above, plant them in soil. For the first days after planting, water just a little every day (one or two teaspoons). After that, wait for the soil to dry completely before watering again. The first leaves to appear are called cotyledons, they are similar to the shape of the seed and will eventually fall off.
Keep the plant away from heat; temperatures that are too high may hurt the young tree.
This is after a month.

This is after five to six months.
There you have it!
If you have questions please contact me.
Enjoy and Happy Planting.
