Five variable, 36 seed trial:

Seed tray Columns: bleach or h202 or water soak
Seed tray Rows: of garden soil vs seed starting mix.

Result: 33/36 germinated,
1 fail in bleach/seed starting mix
1 fail in bleach/garden soil
1 fail in water/garden soil

These results may or may not be significant, clearly not highly significant. The main takeaway is that the fizzing observed from the H202 seeds was clearly not harmful to the seed as they performed the best in this trial, regardless of the medium used, perfect germination (12/12).

Method: warm water, 10 min, half tsp per quart bleach, half tsp. per quart, 30% h202. Seeds were weighed prior to planting. Lightweight seeds, below germination threshold, were not used. All seeds were from the same cross (407 Est).
