Germinate the seeds 🍋
Take a lemon and collect its seeds.
Clean the seeds under running water to remove the adhering pulp and prevent mold.
Leave them to soak for one or two days in a glass of water.
Then wrap the seeds in damp paper towels or cotton and place them in an airtight freezer-type bag that you close.
Store the sachet in a warm place. And wait!
After a few weeks, you will see the first root appear.
Wait until it measures a few centimeters to remove the seeds from the bag.
Growing your lemon tree
Once your lemon seed has germinated and has a root of a few centimeters, all you have to do is plant it in the ground .
You can also grow it in water, a method that I really like.
Then place the seed on a cutting cup - like this one - with the root in the water.
Wait a few more weeks before having the joy of seeing the first leaves appear!
