The Q&A Archives: Germination Of Seeds

Question: After planting stringless beans-2 doz of them, only four seeds germinated and became seedlings. Later I planted another 2 doz seeds after soaking them and no plants after so many days. Why?

Answer: snip the extras with scissors at the base of the plant rather than yanking them out. This helps prevent disturbance to developing root systems. snip the extras with scissors at the base of the plant rather than yanking them out. This helps prevent disturbance to developing root systems.
