“Have too many seeds to sow right now? Keep them fresh by either freezing or refrigerating them. Be sure to put them in a baggie or container so the packages don’t get wet. Plant immediately upon thawing. This will also help germination, especially for those hard to germinate seeds.” — Sheri
“Many tropical seeds have hard shell coats. Pricking these seeds is sometimes a difficult task. You can help to speed germination and soften the seed coat by soaking in boiling water until the seed swells. Replace the water several times daily. A small baby food jar works wonderful for this.” — Sheri
