I finally got some Aussie pea seeds I had for a couple years to sprout after nicking, soaking overnight in warm water, then putting in a plastic bag with some smoked vermiculite with it. They are sprouting I planted them along with more of the smoked vermiculite in a mixture of 20% peat and 80% river sand in a pot. (did I keep them for 3 years?) OMG. Judy Showers (Buttoneer), Pa. USA.
