Have you done any tree planting using seeds ?
My mature almond tree still gave us quite a good harvest last fall. I watered deeply once a month during the summer. A higher percentage of empty and dried up nuts, but not too bad. This year I didn't water at all, but most of the blossoms were nipped by several freezes so it's an inconclusive test. The tree itself is looking great.

Almond, apricot and apple, yes. I have one almond, three apples, two apricots, and an almond-peach cross that have all survived at least one summer/winter. I'll be planting more this winter. I will also be planting concord grape seeds to see what happens. I have yet to have a plum seedling survive. One of the apples was planted in a pot, the others started where they are.

Have you tried planting almond, plum, apricot, and apple seeds to see if they will sprout and survive the coming summer without any help?
