I would try them and see. just pop them in a pot rather than the loo rolls.
 Put the fresh seeds in the loo rolls and the others would just be a bonus if they germinate.

(Also found in the freezer) chicken drumsticks are in the slow cooker with lots of veg.  OH can have a couple of pitta bread from the freezer with it. 

Lardman, I'm shattered too.  It's not as if I was up all night moon watching - it was far too cloudy to see anything.  I'm blaming the virus.  Here's hoping you aren't going down with the lurgy - it seems to be getting everyone at the moment.

Utterly shattered today and I don't even have the excuse of working hard. There's a large spud begging to be nuked and filled with the rest of last night's beans and of course cheese.

I do like those New Shoots  :D I've coveted your apple arches for a number of years  ::)

Cordons are great for packing lots into a confined space, the disadvantage is yield. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit_tree_forms#Yield_and_spacing will give you a guide for fully mature cordons you're looking at 4Kgs vs 25Kgs from an untrained tree.  If you're just after a few kgs of each desert apple they're a very good solution but not so much if you're making cider or have a bad apple pie habit.
