Here it is Smallaxe, I couldn't find original thread, about pre-soaking seed. And it is too early to draw any real conclusions, but (I am so excited!) I planted grass seed March 17 in pots in potting soil inside and moved them outside for greater warmth--its been 75 or 80 at 2 pm for last few days, 50 to 60 at night. I am the only one that looks this close. I spotted a tiny sprout about 1/8 inch tall a few minutes ago. It is the Scotts "Classic" seed (high in ryegrass). The sprout is from the batch that was soaked 24 hours. Stay tuned. I am going to the Earth Service and Supply open house and pesticide training session tomorrow.
