Answer: Not all seeds should be soaked. Soaking aids those with hard seed coats and/or larger sizes, including many seeds from the legume family such as lupine and sweet pea. Tiny seeds such as carrots and lettuces, or wispy "grassy" type seeds, such as bachelor's button or marigolds, don't benefit from soaking.
