About a month ago I shared a post about the Christmas ornament we had that contained 5 scotch pine seeds. If you didn’t see it, here’s the link. The instructions clearly stated that the seeds should be planted in late winter. Here in Central Alberta late winter means March, and I just don’t have the patience….so, I planted them right after New Year’s. We’ve been extremely happy with the Potting Shed Creations products we carry. We’ve tried the bamboo grow pot herbs, the micro greens, and the bonsai trees. So I was confident these would be fine as well however, I would not have been surprised if the seeds didn’t sprout, because of the early planting.
I’m happy to report that about a week ago I noticed something green poking through the soil. Over the next few days a couple more. I’m hopeful for the last two, however I’m not holding my breath.
