After nearly two weeks, I’m sorry to report that my attempt to propagate a Nagami kumquat tree from a sapling’s sucker was unsuccessful. I’ve read how difficult it is to attempt this, but felt I had to try.
Undaunted, when either of my two kumquat trees is more mature and freely fruiting, I’ll try to propagate from the fruit seeds.
In the meantime, a coworker, who shares a love of gardening, gave me the cores of two Fuji apples, both with seeds that appeared to be germinating. I’d stored them in the refrigerator and planted them today in a container. I’m curious to see if something springs up in that container!
CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: Apple seeds are highly toxic if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
