Flo's botanical beauties.....

Flo's Guide to Growing your very own avocado tree.
Have you ever wondered where avocados come from?
Well here are a few tips on how to grow your very own plant.
Step 1
Buy an avacado from your local veg shop. Carefully remove the stone from the middle of the avocado, then treat yourself to an avocado and chilli salad.
Step 2
Look at the avocado stone. You will notice that one end is slightly pointier than the other. Grab a small pot with a hole for drainage in the bottom.
Step 3
Get your pot and pop some compost in it to about half way.
Step 4
Grab your avocado stone and plop it in your pot, with the pointy end pointing to the sky.
Step 5
Fill up the rest of the pot with compost, then water. Leave it on a warm windowsill and wait for the magic to begin. Water when the soil is dry...
