I started a batch of pecans from seed some years back and I was told
that the way to get them to germinate was to use a sharp knife to pop
the suture just a tiny bit. That allows the kernel to imbibe water and
it will germinate within a few days. Worked for me. Everything
germinated within a week of planting.

Folks - After a discussion about pecans last January, Lucky sent me two
of hardy pecan (and other) nuts for a shelterbelt type effort. I scored,
soaked and planted 75 in containers in April - May. Since then they have
been sitting out under a squirrel barrier of 1" x 2" fencing weighted
Just as I was beginning to despair of getting any plants they have
popping up, and as of this morning I have 15 seedling pecans - none of
named varieties or shagbarks yet, Lucky. And No, Joan, I haven't
you. How many did you want?
Thanks again Lucky. dylan
