Seed Coatings?

Posted by hardeng z9FL ( on

I've had great success with "pelletized" (coated) seeds (much better than uncoated).
I've now got some great tomato seeds from tomatoes that I grew, harvested, ate and saved seeds from.
I'd like to coat these seeds like the pros.
Anyone know where you can buy a diy liquid coating for seeds, or how to make a liquid coating?

RE: Seed Coatings?

I'm sorry, but I have no idea. I really don't see where there is any advantage to it, at least for the tomato seeds. You might ask about what you have in mind at the Tomato Forum. Possibly someone there (who sells commercially) will know where it can be found. I imagine though that there will be most though who will just reassure you that it really isn't necessary, or even advantageous for you to try and treat your mater seeds.
