Help! I'm trying to start my seeds.

12 years ago

Hello all,

I sat down to start my tomato seeds last night. This is the first time I have used Jiffy Seed Starting Mix and I can't get it wet. I have always used the peat pellets in years past but thought I would try this seed starting mix this year. I filled my Jiffy Seed Starter Greenhouse with the mix and poured water on it and put some in the bottom to soak from the bottom up. I've sometimes had to wait awhile for peat to absorb water but this is crazy. It's been 24hrs and I still don't have moist planting mix. I'm tempted to add some dishwashing liquid to break the surface tension but I'm afraid of adding too much and causing germination problems with my seeds. Does anybody have any advice?
