    Hi my name is Emily & I watched your program on White Horse Media and you talked about sprouting with Steve. You said if we said my friend steve we would get it at 1/2 price, I have tried to sign up and keeps rejecting the code. Can you please help I would like to sign up. Thank you! God’s Blessings, Emily

    Thanks! I love stuff like this as it is so informative! Having grown many things from seed over the years, I will say there’s a lot to learn for the novice seed magician. Seeds and how they germinate are an endearing mystery of life which only present their “dirty” secrets to those deeply interested. Once I learned how many different varieties of medicinal plant seeds needed months and months of cold stratification it was a real eye opener. Even warm weather seeds germinated better with some form of cold stratification. I grew some Yampah (Perideridia gairdneri) from seed and put it in the fridge in a cheap plastic baggie with moist sterilized sand 3 months ago and just today I took it out (after forgetting about it) and behold, hundreds of tiny little Yahmpah plants growing ever so gently among the sands of time! As if I had found the remains of some ancient paleolithic plant, I one by one extracted ever so gently the tiny Yampah sprouts and planted them in a sanitized soil mixture. I had the same thing happen when trying to grow Fireweed (Chamaenerion angustifolium) and Rabbit Tobacco (Pseudognaphalium obtusifolium). These are plants you don’t see in a nursery setting all that often so it’s nice to know some of their secrets. What a wonderful world we live in!
