Hey, micromos. Those 30 year old tomato seeds must be special.
Rainbowgardener is right on with the damp paper towels. If after
a couple of days you still donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have any results, try this out. I did
germination tests on grass seed this way when I was in school.
Get a cookie sheet and put your seeds in wet paper towels, put on the
cookie sheet, and then put in your oven in the kitchen. Use the middle
shelf. Turn on the oven to 250 degrees for about 15 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 20 seconds
and then turn it off. Leave them in there overnight and check in the
morning. Good luck.
