Do you need to dry seeds before replanting?

I looked for answers on the net. Has anyone else noticed that a lot of gardening sites seem to be compiled by bots ? Like you get vague, confusing, and conflicting answers with poorly constructed grammar?

Anyway. I though I'd ask here.

Do you (always) need to dry seeds before replanting? Like when you want to have two harvests of a plant in one season?

My feeling is that tomato-like plants and squash-like plants can be immediately re-planted. I base this on observation in compost piles and that sometimes squash starts germinating while it's still inside fruit. But guessing that most lettuce, flowers, pods, and beans need to be dried out.

In any event, I plan to try a quick turn-around with Snow Fairy and see(d) how it goes.

Thanks!

I'm with you on both accounts. I am leery of online advice unless I have faith in the source and it is applicable to my Mediterranean environment.

Tomatoes - We know tomato seeds start germinating inside ripe tomatoes. So, it stands to reason you can turn around and start the seeds.

Green beans and peas and such - I let them dry out since it is the immature stage we eat. My Blue Lake beans have bitten the dust and I'm going to plant the dry seeds from the few beans that managed to stay hidden.

Do you need to dry seeds before replanting? Empty Snow Fairies germinating after 12 days

Post  markqz 7/11/2022, 11:50 pm

The fruit-to-seed snow fairies came up after about 10~12 days. I think that's about 5 days slower than the dried seeds, but still not bad. Especially since I don't know how long they would have to stay dry and/or be refrigerated to get the rapid start benefit.
