Frozen Seeds

How will freezing a seed affect its germination.

Hypothesis

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.

Experiments

Control

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.

Conclusion

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.
