I read the forums all the time and find you guys so useful, so your help is appreciated beforehand!!!

Three days ago i bought a packet of morning glory seeds, on the packet i read that to help with germination i could nick it a bit with a nail file and soak it in water overnight; so last night i did both, but this morning the seeds looked bloated and also like they exploted. Are this seeds still good? or did i just destroyed them before gemination? I want to know so i can buy more seeds. thanks a bunch!!!!!

When you soak seeds (nicked or unnicked) the bloating just means that water is getting to the seed and dhould sprout just fine!

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

I planted some right in the garden, kinda late for my zone (5) and theyre up and about 1 1/2" or 2" tall. When it gets hot again, watch out! They'll zip right up there.
