The Q&A Archives: Germination Of Morning Glory Seeds

Question: I bought a packet of Morning Glory seeds and followed the directions to score & soak them overnight for better germination. However, I didn't get around to planting them & now it's been a week that they've been soaking. Are they still OK to plant or should I buy a new packet & start over?

Thank you!

Answer: It's safe to soak seeds for about 24 hours. After that period of time the water will drive oxygen out of the seed and it will drown. Eventually the seeds will rot. Don't plant them - replace them with fresh seed.
