A Little Sewing And A Little Gardening
Spray them using a spray bottle with water and cover with plastic wrap. Set on a sunny counter, keep moist and remove wrap as soon as you see sprouts. Now you can place them EXACTLY where you want them, shell and all in your garden. My tip for growing great zinnias is epsoms salt. I sprinkle it all over the soil, work it in and plant either the plants or seeds. I think you are supposed to test your soil first, I did not but it worked well. You can also use it for tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.
Even though it seems late to be starting warm weather seeds indoors, the secret to gardening is warm soil. It does not matter how early you get plants out, they will not really start to grow if the soil is too cold.
