As soon as you've sown your seeds, you'll be checking to see if they've grown. Some seeds can germinate in just a few days. This is especially true for the big seeds you've helped to absorb water by soaking them before you sowed them. Annuals usually grow fast, too, because they have to get all their growing done in just one year. Sometimes, you need to be more patient. KOK◊„«ÚAPPs of some perennials take months to germinate. Some seeds don't germinate at all, even for the experts, so don't think you've done something wrong if yours don't. Just try again.

As well as knowing when you can expect to see your seeds coming through the ground, you might also like to know what they look like when they're small. Weeds often grow faster than the plants you want, and they often look stronger, too, so you might keep the weeds and pull up the seedlings if you aren't sure which are which.
