Remember the avocado seeds we started nurturing way back in the summer?
Well, we finally got round to potting them over the weekend. We probably should have done it a lot sooner, but it's pretty amazing how big these things managed to grow with just some water and the nutrients packed into the seed.
They're pretty bizarre looking really, and weirdly totally different. My one on the left grew very tall and thin - too tall to fit in the photo! - and Ben's is short and thick with little fat leaves. We were wondering if they might be two different kinds of avocado?
I hope they continue to thrive now they're in soil - fingers crossed their leaves keep growing and they start looking a bit less odd.
Here they are all planted, and ready to go back indoors...
Ben's pot was too shallow to cover the seed, so it still looks pretty bonkers. Oh well, it's that kind of gardening experiment I think.
