I purchased cold hardy Bamboo seeds. It said to nick the brown seed coat, revealing a hard white flesh underneath. I then kept the seeds submerged in water for 3 days, hoping to see the seed swell. Then I put them in miracle gro potting mix covered and kept moist. A month went by and no sprouts? The seeds are still very hard, I thought to germinate seeds swell with water and get soft to sprout, but not these. What did I do wrong I don't see any signs of life.
