Frozen Seeds

How will freezing a seed affect its germination.


If the seeds are frozen before being planted then the seeds will take longer to germinate because they will have to thaw and will have sub-stained damage from being frozen.



Seed planted without being frozen and with optimal amount of light, water, and temperature.

*This was the best way I could figure out how to do a chart.


The seeds died all together; not at all supporting the hypothesis. A new hypothesis is needed as freezing the seeds destroyed them; preventing them from germinating. We need a different approach to slowing the germinating process of these seeds.
