Ok! I am giving away a BIG secret here.
This idea for seed germination is available along with other info on gardening, in my new publishing Spring Gardening: How-To Start. I will be providing the link, soon as it is made available on Amazon!
For now, I want to give you an exclusive insider tip to a new found technique that I have discovered while germinating seeds this year.
As I was working on my book, a little birdie flew in and dropped a jewel for me right in my lap. Well actually I was just scrolling social media and one of my favorite people were sharing their video experience with gardening, and how they had all these seeds, which sprouted in only a few days.
I wondered, wow, how did she do that. Yeah, I know how to take a wet paper towel with seeds then placing it in a sandwich bag,
So I kept listening, intensively as she continued to share. And finally, she said “… we added hydrogen peroxide to the water and soaked are napkin!”
I was BLOWN away! I mean, sure I have heard of using many natural ingredients such as castile soap mixed with vegetable oil and using it as a spray to battle the pest. But not once had I thought of peroxide. Then again, hydrogen is an important element found in healthy soil and adds in the optimal growth of plants.
Of course, I had to test it out, as pictured below…..
Those suckers sprouted in just 2 days! The baggie is labeled 4/21 and this picture was taken the morning of 4/23!
Go ahead, give it a try!
