Seed after aeration
Seed just prior to aeration
Slits in soil
Untreated control
Soil topdressing (about .16 " )

16 days later, it was difficult to tell the difference, but treatments with soil topdressing, and secondly, seed applied before topdressing showed the best result. The tallest seedlings were about a half-inch tall.
What type of germination did you get between the aeration holes? Anything? Just hair plug results?
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
