Siberian crabapple

     Stratifying some Malus baccata aka siberian crabapple seeds. they were 40 days into a 90 day stratification when I noticed that some of the seeds had sprouted. I took these seeds out and planted them.

     One week after planting the germinated seeds I saw this. Here in Inglewood the winters and summers are very mild. It rarely dips below 40 degrees fahrenheit.

     It's amazing to see how much these seedlings have grown. When they get about 4 to 6 inches I will cut the tap roots and plant them in individual containers.

Five months later and the crabapples are looking gteat. Growth was slow at first. A little fertilizer and they pepped up.
