I am ten years old ad have a couple of questions to ask you about gardening.What does it mean when the leaves on my one year old apple tree curl inwards (grown from seeds)? What month do I plant pumpkin seeds and can I grow pumpkin seeds indoors?

It is not unusual for young plants, including apple trees, to curl the leaves. It is usually a sign of vigour, but it can be caused sometimes by greenfly, but natural predators usually clear this problem.

Pumpkin seeds are usually sown in mid-April indoors in individual pots, about 1-litre size, for planting out at the end of May when the danger of frost has passed.
