I collected some wild rose seeds
and was wondering is there a way to speed up the process of germination?
I took some Kentucky Coffetree seeds
which supposedly only germinate after being eaten, then excreted in waste.
I cut a tiny slit in the main seed
casing (scarification) which revealed the seed
inside, sandpapered it a bit, then let it soak for 24 hours in hot water to soften the seed
, then planted it and it sprouted weeks later indoors.
Could I use sandpaper or scarify the rose seed
then soak it in hot water for 24 hours before planting it?
