The Q&A Archives: Seed Germination

Question: I just purchased several Burpee seed packs (Lettuce,onion,radish,peas,spinach,pumpkin,squash,cucumber,bean,and roquette). None of the packs mentioned lighting for best seed germination. Can I assume it dosen't matter?

Answer: The seeds you mention do not require light in order to germinate, but they will need to go under a source of light once they've sprouted. Seed packages will indicate the need for light for those seeds that require it.
