I'm soaking Calendula seeds in warm water overnight before seeding them in community pots. Has anyone done this before? Did it reduce the number of days to germination? Any suggestions for starting these indoors?

What I want to demonstrate is how to bump up seedlings (1-2 sets true leaves) into individual cell packs; this is a practice exercise for a class of new gardeners. I usually do this with Crackerjack Marigold seedlings but am looking for a change!
