Did you know that in the same cup that you drank the fresh squeezed lemon juice you can grow a real lemon tree?!
You will need just a little soil and lemon seeds:
Step 1. Select the largest lemon seeds and clean the external cover from them.
Step 2. Pour water and leave them to stay for 6-7 days, change the water every day.
Step 3. Put few stones at the bottom of the cup or the small pot, and then fill in with wet soil. Put the seeds in the ground with the pointy end facing down, and leave space between them.
Step 4. Then cover the seeds with coarse sand or gravel.
Step 5. Spray the surface with water every 2-3 days in order to foster the growth. In about 7-8 days you should see the first stalks.
Step 6. After 3-5 months when the stems will grow, select the most beautiful and the strongest ones and transplant them into larger pots. In order to bring forth fruit, the tree must be trimmed regularly and provided with the proper care.
