Salt Petre, Potassium NitrateSalt Petre, Potassium Nitrate - Add one teaspoon to a quart of water. Then put the water in small glasses or jars (depending on how many varieties of seeds you wish to soak) and leave for 4 to 8 hours. This soaking will speed up the germination of otherwise difficult to germinate seeds. Seeds lying dormant for too long a period will blacken and rot before germinating. Drain and save the solution to use for watering the seeds.
