I’d like to try growing a plum tree from pits but am getting so much different advice i’m confused. do i need to put the pits in the fridge for a while or can i just pot them?

Plums stones can be potted and left outside to get some winter cold or kept in a fridge in damp sand in a polythene bag, open enough to allow some air exchange, for a couple of months and then potted up.

While you may get some to sprout, the chances are not great of getting a tree of any quality, Usually on their own roots, they trees are very vigorous.

But it’s worth a try.
