Oops, your first mistake was to dry the seeds. Plant them in good soil right out of the fruit and see what happens.

My friend has been growing a beautiful lemon tree in his office for years. The fruit is fantastic. He gave me one of his lemons and I have been drying the seeds for about 2 weeks now. What are my best options for starting these seeds in doors. We live in Connecticut.
