hydrogen peroxide and seeds

Mount Vernon, OH

I can't find the info on the use of hydrogen peroxide and seeds. How much peroxide to how much water? I have a lot of seeds to soak and wanted to try this approach.

if i was to use it as fertilizer, would it kill the good bacteria in the soil? just curious.

Do you soak all your seeds before you plant them? I do not have good luck with seeds and am going to try using proxide but I was not sure about soaking.

No, I've only soaked morning glory seeds

Thank you.

I have soaked hibiscus, bat flowers, passion flowers, morning glories, anything with hard shell seeds. My germination rate so far has been 80-90% maybe more since they keep popping up. :o)

I took the water-hygrogen peroxide mixture in a cup and then soaked for 24 hours (a few 48 hours) and then put a thin cloth over the drain to drain the water to put the seeds in the soil.

Worked great!
