Viewing NatureWalker's Garden Diary: Seed Techniques of My Own
Tuesday, May 16, 2006
Pour one cup of boiled hot water over seeds; let stand overnight in a tightly covered jar. Strain seeds the next day (24 hours.) Mix strained seeds with one teaspoon of dry sand. Warm or heat the soil to be used in the microwave on high for 40 seconds or pour boiling hot water on top of soil. Don't let the soil cool down. Sprinkle the seeds with the mixed dry sand over top of soil (don't cover seeds.) Put them in a warm, dark cupboad. They need to be on top of the soil, in a warm, dark place to sprout faster.
