Did he take down my apple tree? I read you have to plant the whole apple to get a tree in about a year. Is it true? Tell me! thumbup

From what I understand, it's difficult to get apple trees to germinate and grow from seed. You're better off buying a grafted sapling that has combined the variety of apple you're looking for with a superior rootstock.

Of course, one of the great things about gardening is that it can't hurt to try! thumbup

We have a big ole useless apple tree with tons of rotting apples, none are edible but there are usually seedlings all around. I would say direct sow them in the fall or better yet, just toss the core in a hole and bury it.

I would suggest you plant the WHOLE apple not just the core. It will have a better chance of sprouting with all the flesh around it, it doesn't just rot, but feeds the seeds the stuff it needs.
my grandson likes to plant "things" mostly rock...weird but he IS only 3. anywho, he planted an apple his mama gave him, the WHOLE thing and it sprouted. They now have a 2 foot tree in the backyard and he calls it his Gabby food,(Gabby is his baby brother not even 7 months old) for when he gets older
