Answer: Some seeds require a period of dormancy before they'll sprout. Others need a heat treatment or a cold treatment to get them in the mood to germinate. Still others take many months to germinate. Some seeds need light, some need darkness and some need heat to germinate. Since we don't know exactly what you're trying to germinate, we can't give specific instructions. However, you can try to scarify the seedcoat to allow moisture to penetrate. Plant the seed only as deep as twice its diameterand leave it in the potting soil until it sprouts. Keep the soil moist but not sopping wet. It could take months before you see anything - be patient and you may be rewarded with a brand new plant.
