Do you know what this is?

Hi everyone, 

I have two small seedlings growing in my greenhouse, and I'm not sure if they are what I planted. 

So I'm hoping someone may recognise these two little plants. 

In this first pot I planted an orange pip.


And in this one I planted an olive pit. This one has been growing incredibly slowly.


Both have been in the greenhouse for about 7, maybe 8 weeks, but prior to that we're out in the garden uncovered. 

If you can help identify these two, I would be so grateful. 

Thank you ????

    At that stage of developement , very difficult to tell image.


  • If it is an orange seedling then the first leaves would have had the seed case covering the first leaves, and it would be lying on the compost and recognisable. It is a very big seed so the seedling would also be rather substantial, and your seedling seems to be very small, so I think it is something else.

    the first has the look of some sort of geranium. Neither look like any sort of tree.
