You can soak your seeds that have a hard shell in this wonderful liquid.
1 Tbsp. Fels-Naptha soap (I find this in the laundry aisle)
1 tbsp. Epsom salts
1 tbsp. tea water
1 gallon of very warm water
I put all this in to a bowl and put my seeds in there over-night. I wake up the next morning and plant.
