  • Trouble germinating seeds

    Half the seeds I germinate start to crack and get tails then don't go any further. What am I doing wrong, I use paper towel method

    Once that taproot comes out you place it in whatever medium you plan on growing it in.

      Half my post didn't show, As soon as tails show I put them in potting soil, but that's it nothing coms up, I have done the same for 5 years but the last 2 years I started having trouble.I have always used same supplyer

        If you used to get it right and then stopped, something must have changed....
        How long do you let the tap root get before potting up? I like to get a good half inch or so.
        I'm always very very gentle with them, I make a hole with a pencil and gently drop the sprouting seed in so that the tap root is full length down into the hole.
        I can't think what you could be doing wrong. I get a near 100% success rate with this method.
