Any idea what kind of seeds these are?

ThePinkWomanJanuary 15, 2014

I have bags of seeds laying all around my garage. A year or two ago, I ordered Heuchera seeds and planted a few but none germinated. I decided to try again this year with the Heuchera, and am looking for the seeds amongst all of these others. Do these look like Heuchera seeds to you? If not, what would they look like? Thanks!

Looks like onion seeds to me.

The picture is to fuzzy to make the shape of the seed. Heucheras usually have tiny, petunia-like seeds, as far as I know.

Kind of like onions, but too fuzzy to tell for sure. To me they look more like Yucca filamentosa seeds.

Heuchera seeds are more like brown-black dust: way smaller than petunia seeds.

Just sprinkle a few atop the potting mix -- avoid the temptation to use too many. And don't sprinkle any potting mix over the seeds, because they need light to germinate. But do cover the pots with clear plastic so the mix doesn't dry up.

Once the seeds have sprouted, remove the cover. Mist the top or water them from below as needed.

I agree that it is hard to tell, with the photo out of focus... but they look like morning glory seeds.
