Old BOG seed stock?

Hey Icmag world!

I bought a pack of Lifesavers and Blue Moon Rocks in about 2013-14' off of Seed Boutique and I tried to germ them using various methods (24 hr soak, paper towel tek and straight to soil) but I couldn't get any of them to pop. They were stored in the original plastic bag in which the seeds came in, inside of a small glass jar inside of a small cardboard box and inside of a rubbermaid container until now (yah, I know). Does anyone know if this stock is old and not worth rebuying? I'm very disappointed to tell you the truth. Any ideas? Thanks!

you suffocated your seeds they need oxygen to survive storage.

You can disregard that advice OP.


BOG is a very nice guy, and I'm sure if you contact him he will replace your seeds. Unfortunately this is a common issue with his stock that gets shouted down by people who enjoy his lines, partially because he's a really nice guy and people don't want to feel like someone they like is under attack. I had repeat germination problems with something like four different lines of his. He was always helpful and replaced them, but I distinctly remember an explanation back in maybe 2012 or 2013 of "well those came off an outdoor plant" when I asked about the low germ problems. Not user error on my part - dozens of other cultivars and dozens of other species get sprouted in my garden. It's a problem with quality control on either the breeder or the distributors end. We can make it personal because we like a breeder or we can face the facts like consumers and producers and work to get it resolved.

I don't think I suffocated them, I popped bagseed that was stored in the same way but they were around 10 years old.

@stoned-trout - I haven't tried scuffing them, I didn't know I had to but I'll definitely give that a shot if I get more. In your opinion, should I scuff every seed that I plan to germ or just the old ones? Have you ever seen downsides from scuffing?

@loblollydreams - Thanks for the info dude. And I agree, it's most likely a quality control issue between BOG and the distributors. Oh well, what can I do now but ask for a replacement or move on = (.

Thanks guys!

You should scoff seeds after they don't open in a reasonable amount of time ( 48/60 hrs to me)
Gently rub them down with some sandpaper and back in the towels.

I also will add some dmso to the tap water I use.
Bogs good with replacements from what I've seen ,

Sometimes these threads and I think to myself how many people just hustle breeders for free gear......... Me personally I would caulk it up and move on or pm but that just me
