    I assume by seedlings you mean small plants? We took the seeds from some of the tomatoes and peppers we bought, dried them out for a week or two, planted them in 'black earth' and lo and behold we have many tomatoes and peppers. Did the same with cucumbers, water melons and honey melons and they have all grown well and produced fruit. Even our lemon trees are self sown...

    i dont visit vivaros much so i dont know what seedlings are availible. ochoa, bellon, american have a decent supply of vegatable seeds. Not a huge variaty, but seeds that actually grow well in this area. I had very poor luck with most seeds i brought in from the US

    Wink How to plant an avocado seed?

    In advance, my apologies if this is a silly question...I admit I am ignorant to the world of avocados but they are delicious & I wouldn't mind trying my green thumb out....(ok...light green )

    Do you plant the whole pit or are there seeds inside?

    Thanks,
    Sangria
