 Meanwhile on our terrace garden front again with some hope planting citrus fruits seeds. this time I have removed the hard shell covering to help the seeds to sprout faster, keeping my fingers crossed! Usually till the time the seeds begin to sprout they are either soggy with water or feasted upon by birds. So have to hasten the process. Dried them after cleaning them well, removed the hard cover and planted them. One inch bellow the soil they have been planted, lets see how nature helps out!.

All the Best from Rizwana!
