Seed Swaps

Are these guys ever gonna sprout?

So I had a bunch of old nasturtium seeds, and some I collected that I’m trying to get to sprout. I soaked them and planted them in little jiffy pellets. So far nothing, after three weeks. Should I just give up?

When I give up on something like this, I recycle the little peat things. I pull off the net wrapper and crumble the stuff into a pot or the garden. That way I have the comfort of knowing that if the seeds change their minds, they can still grow and I’m not wasting the peat. Silly, I guess, but it makes me feel better.

My nasturtiums sprouted in 10 days when sown outside, so yeah, I think these might be goners. Some flower seeds are helped along by nicking the seeds, but if you soaked them, that should have done the trick.
