Can seeds be to old


#1

Continuing the discussion from Germinated seed:

can seeds be to old. as of late i can’t seem to get the my seeds to germinat in the wet paper towels.


#2

They are considered old after 5 years, and if the seeds aren’t healthy they won’t germinate as well as right temp, and humidity


#3

But if they are not stored in a cool dry dark place and stored in direct sunlight and heat that can ruin seeds before a 5 year period


#4

use a very fine sand paper and lightly scuff the seed before soaking it weakens the husk and lets water penetrate easily
