I started germinating these seeds on 2/22/15. I've never used the paper towel method, but I heard it works great for fast germination so I thought I'd give it a shot this year with the plants I wanted to sprout earlier:)
I dampened the paper towels, then added a tiny bit of seaweed powder for a boost and so far they did great!
