ok, here you go, fellow gardeners... a sure fire way to ensure germination of those sweet peas!!! Lay your seeds out in a paper towel, wet it well, to dripping, place it in a ziplock bag, and leave it in a warm place- even the top of the refrigerator will work- check daily for signs of sprouting (the first ones will sprout in 2 days, most usually) as they sprout, transfer them to containers, preferrably deep ones to handle their rather aggressive roots, and cover about 1/2 " deep in moist, but not soaked, medium... Grow on!
