possibility of growing plums from pits?
i was visiting some friends recently and they had a huge amount of heirloom plums from a farming co-operative they belong to. i took some pits home with me since i thought they may sprout as they are heirlooms and not hybrids. that being said, they're dry now, and i was wondering if it would be possible to start growing them in a large pot, planting them now and letting them over-winter either outdoors or in the garage. does anyone know how to grow a plum and if i should do something special (i.e. crack the pit first, special soil). any and all information is appreciated! thanks in advance.
