Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen, and in this segment we're going to talk all about how to grow almonds. Now, almonds are a gorgeous nut, and they're easy to grow if you have the right conditions. And they do best in climates that are near the coast that are a little drier; that don't have a lot of rain, so the Pacific Northwest is very difficult to grow almonds. But, if you live in California it's very easy. So, you can treat em' as a houseplant or bring em' inside for the winter, cause' they cannot go below freezing. They can handle a little bit of frost, but you'll lose em' if it freezes really hard. So, just put em' in a container if you live in a cold climate and bring em' inside for the winter, or if you live in a warmer climate just leave em' outside. Water em' well, but really let em' dry out in between watering, because if they get too wet they'll start to rot and they get mold. They really like it on the dry side. And you can start em' by a graft or by the tree itself, or you can actually try to start them from the almond themselves, but anyway you start em' they're a great plant, and they're very easy to grow if you have the right conditions.
