What is H220?? I have some corkscrew seed that I'm trying to germinate also. I soaked them in water then planted in seed starting mix but they don't seem to be coming up. I'm not familiar with H220 or how/where to get it.

Hello!!
H220= hydogen peroxcide...I used the cheap stuff from the dollar store.
I just put a small splash in a cup of warm water..nicked the seeds to expose a bit of white.

Happy Gardening : )
