Soaking Seeds in water before planting
Hello I am new to gardening and would like to grow vegetables in containers. There is a lot of confusing advice on the internet, especially about soaking seed for 8-12 hours before planting. Some even advocate doing so in boiling water. Others recommend a weak acidic solution. I consulted The extremely reliable and professional website of the Royal Horticultural Society, UK and could find no recommendation of soaking seeds, in their vegetable growing advice section. I seek your expert opinion whether all seeds be they flower or vegetable be soaked before planting or only some specific varieties need this treatment. I thank you in advance. Hilal
