Reasons for low seed germination. How to fix it if you are dealing with seedlings?
Most often, summer residents who buy seeds from unverified suppliers or even on the Internet fall into such a situation. There are many reasons for this, but the main thing is to know how to correct the situation and not repeat the mistake in the future.
So that there are no problems, you need to soak suspicious seeds as follows: seeds of zucchini and watermelons, cabbage, radishes and lettuce are soaked in water at a temperature of 20-25 degrees for 12 hours.
Tomatoes, beets, carrots and parsley are kept for 48 hours, and peas and beans are kept for 6 hours in the same conditions. Cucumber seeds are kept in water (+50) for 2 hours. For soaking, the seeds are placed in a gauze bag, placed in a vessel with water, but so that it only slightly covers the seeds.
Good seeds grow without it, but everything that has been stored for more than 4 years without stimulants is better not to plant.
Aloe juice is the most common folk stimulant.
