Prepping Apricot Plum tree seeds and wisteria seeds for germination AND gardening spreadsheet PLUS *YouTube video*

So I mentioned before that I ordered a good amount of seeds including some flowers and also fruit trees to start from seeds. I’m eager to try all different types and starting them from cuttings, seeds, plants, bare root, etc to further broaden my understanding of gardening and learn through trial and error.

 

So after making my gardening spreadsheet (which you’ll see a shot of in the video below) I realized I had 2 seeds I needed to get to work on NOW. My Japanese Flowering Apricot Plum tree seeds need to be soaked in water for 24 hours and then cold stratify in the freezer or fridge for 60-90 days and THEN they can be potted indoors to germinate. So in the video I get started on that.

 

Check out the video on YouTube here!!!!

And you can SCROLL DOWN for pictures of GORGEOUS TREES!!! What these babies will be one day! *swoon* Oh the day!

 

My Japanese purple wisteria vine I’m starting from seeds as well and they just need to soak in water for 8 hours prior to me planting those in soil indoors to germinate.

 

The hope is that at least 1 Apricot Plum tree will go up beside the chicken run and then I will do 1-2 in the zone 1 food forest and if the other 1-2 actually germinate for me and do well they’ll go out in the big food forest. They are beautiful flowering trees and look absolutely stunning, they should do well in our zone and I’m eager and hopeful that they all turn out well!

 

This is what those will look like…

Ahhhh! I hope they do well here! And I can’t wait to see them looking like this in several years! Pops of light pink studded around the property in the spring, heavenly!

 

The purple Japanese wisteria vine is going 1 place, as of now, and that is on the pergola in the zone 1 garden that you walk under to go from the driveway to the front door. The purpose of it is to provide shade in the summer months and also just be beautiful!!!!

 

Here is a look at what my wisteria will look like… LOVE!
