Tell me why its necessary to file and soak seeds?

13 years ago

Im new (really new to gardening) and it seems like i want to do it all at once! And i want to do it right! i research the internet finding the correct way to plant certain plants. On the seed packages you get at a retailer, it says just plant seeds in the ground. but on some websites it says to file a nick in the seed then soak it overnight. Is this necessary or suggested? what are the advantages of doing this? Id rather ask the experts or experienced gardners!!!
