How To Nick Seeds?

I usually soak the seeds in warm water overnight. Those with really hard shell need more than a day of soaking. After soaking, drain the seeds and let it dry under the sun. You can use a nail clipper (on sweet pea seeds) or use coarse type sandpaper and break through the seed's hard casing just enough for moisture to get in. In other cases I resort to using a hammer just like these seeds of a purple leaf plum.
