« on: February 13, 2009, 06:53:15 pm »
hiya all just a wondering, I after puting beans/seed in to water and they float does that mean they are bad or good.
i have a memory floating around in my brain that floating beans(that beingbean broad ,runner etc) that they are bad and will come to no good.

put a bean in water over night then put in wet paper towel or napkin in a warm place if seed good will sprout in a few days

I think that was for pumpkin seeds, Linz (I'll check) If they float they've not ripened enough. :&>
