    Growing Apple trees from seed.

    Can I just not use a scion and graft a tree into my apple seedling? I literally have only one seedling, found from an apple that had a seed already sprouting inside, and I don't have the money nor the pots to grow another apple seedling. Also, I mean, that's sort of silly, I mean, one thing is wanting to grow a variety of apple, another is wanting to grow an apple tree. I want to do the latter, I'm a gardener, not a fruit cultivator, my project is to see if I can make the apple seedling become a tree.Also, I have another question, related to an issue I've noticed on my tree.

You see, my apple tree was fine and dandy until I took it outside, where it started having some spots that I thought it was cedar apple rust, so I started treating for it with some home remedies (since I have no money for buying anything), and I thought it was sort of okay. But then, I transplanted it to a new pot, because it was obviously too large for the little ceramic pot it was in, and I used soil from a local forest I live nearby, that I knew from the past to be very rich, as it's a forest bordering a wetland, and I had used this soil to supplement my flower garden and even my vegetable garden on the past, it's very nice, a bit too easy to make it compacted, but otherwise, not bad at all, the patch I got from had even some yellow soil, which I read up online that it means it's a soil high in iron oxides. Also, fearing that the soil might be lacking nitrogen, I even watered the tree with MiracleGro once after transplanting it. But the older leaves started turning this shade of dark brown, from the borders in, in addition to the spots I thought that was cedar apple rust, and are turning sort of crispy. I took it into my house, because I wanted to stop the rust from spreading, clipped off the leaves that were affected, and then left it on a eastern window (we don't have southern facing windows here), and it keeps on making new growth, but yet, the older growth grows rusty spots and starts turning dark, dark brown from the edges in, following the veins. What is going on? Why is my apple seedling acting like that?
