    Default Monkey Nut Challenge!

    Ok guys, who's up for a challenge. I'm sure after Christmad we can muster up a handful of uneaten Monkey Nuts. I plan on sowing some on New Years Day, growing them on indoors then in the Greenhouse............Please don't let me be the only Nutter...........

    Just mention a Nut and I'm there
    I accept your Challenge. Never tried growing a Monkeynut.
    There'll be Homegrown peanut butter on the menu soon

    I have found this....

    How to Grow Peanuts (with Pictures) - wikiHow

    And this.....

    National Peanut Board » How to Grow Peanuts In Your Own Garden

    But can't seem to find out the viability time of the nut.
    I bought some a couple of years ago to decorate a wreath and have a few left.
    If the nuts are viable I'll join you too!

    Very pretty leaves!

    I would do but non of us eat monkey nuts so can't really justify to the OH the reason I'd need to buy a full bag just to see if I can grow them.

    Will they grow or have they been 'treated' not to?
