Sprouting Seeds Don't throw those old seeds away!

click on picture for directions on checking germination of seeds

About ten days ago, I placed some old seeds on moist paper towels to see which ones would sprout.  Out of all the seeds, the Four O'clocks, Shasta Daisy, and Wildflowers all sprouted. All were about 2 years old. The older seeds were as old as five years and none of the moonflower or evening primose would sprout.  If you find some old seeds and and don't want to throw them out if they are good, try testing the seeds for germination.
