Hi, I was wondering how long to soak seeds in Neptune’s Harvest fish/seaweed emulsion? Thanks.
Answer: How long to soak will depend on what type of seed. Some seeds have a tougher outer shell and are definitely aided by soaking. Beet, corn and pea seeds are notorious for this. Smaller seeds like carrots or spinach can benefit from soaking, with expedited germination.
The length of time can be as few as 2 hours for smaller, softer seeds, or up to 12 hours for harder seeds. Never soak over 24 hours or until they begin to sprout. Smaller seeds will be tougher to plant after soaking. One method might be to soak them in a small squeeze bottle and to spread the seeds with the squeeze bottle.
