One late night as I was perusing Pinterest, as I am apt to do, I came across this pin about planting lemon seeds. I loved the look of the lemon plant and I had to do one myself. The leaves of lemon plants are supposed to smell amazing!
I always have a ton of lemons on hand so I saved up the seeds from two lemons and placed them in a mug to keep them moist until I was ready to plant them.
Then I took a small vase (my $1 vase from Michael’s!) and added soil almost all the way to the top of the planter. I added water until the soil was moist.
Next I added the lemon seeds into rows, making sure to leave a bit of space between each seed. Before you plant your seeds, make sure that they are thoroughly rinsed of any pulp.
The last step is to cover the seeds with more soil and add a bit of water until all the soil is moist. Then cover the planter with plastic wrap and place somewhere warm to create a greenhouse effect to allow the seeds to germinate.
I’ll be keeping a close eye on my lemon seedlings. I’ve been on a real gardening kick lately but it’s yet to be seen if I have a green thumb or a black one.
Have you planted anything lately? Would you try planting lemon seeds?
