The Seedcracker by Woodshed
The Seed Cracker was invented to help with the germination of old genetics that have become weak from old age or improper storage. These old seeds can use a little help in the germination process. By pre cracking the seed it can then use its energy to grow and not waste it trying to bust open a tough shell. In the process of using the Seed Cracker i have started cracking all my seeds. New and old. This is my preference and not the preference of some. I believe if you sterilize the seed, pre cracking will only speed germination. The fastest seed i have sprouted is at 36 hours standing straight up in a peat plug. Directions are on the label.
