Most gardeners will attempt to germinate seeds at some stage, germination is simply the process of growth being stimulated from the dormant seed of a plant. It sounds simple however a few factors need to be taken into account as different seeds from different climates do have a range of requirements.

The facts are that some seeds just germinate a lot more quickly and easily than others. To maximize germination rates you will need to factor in the individual conditions for the particular seed. Most seeds require little equipment however some are a little more difficult and may need stratification, scarification or special heat pads or kits to improve rates.
