Hi, to all of you! I am a rank amateur of the first water being totally lacking in the ability to make anything grow successfully, besides being a first-time newcomer to your website....... I took two grapefruit pips this morning and buried them about 2-3 cm deep in a commercially marketed plant medium in a pot about 20 cm deep and a circ. of about 10-12 cm. I have tried this before with apple pips, various small citrus types and date stones - all with no results. Am I fighting a losing battle, failing to say the magic words, or what? Is there any hope for me?
