That really is a good one! Thanks for posting it.

For perennials check out: Seed Germination Database - Perennials

Here is another one linked below. Note they are pdf downloads.

This is the link to the whole Clothiers site that Dave mentions - the articles on seed sowing are worth your time too....

Thanks Dave and Morz! There is another massive database out there also. Can't remember where. If anyone knows it, please add the link.
Thanks

PS. Actually think it is an old book, but accessible online.

....It is from the old days before there was TV, computers and cars, when agriculture was #1. Amazing how much modern agriculture knowledge goes back to the late 1800's and early 1900's.

Thompson & Morgan had a great one for years but it is now out of print. But you can still access the majority of it via

http://backyardgardener.com/tm.html

Then there is the work-in-progress from a site we can't link to here. See:

Dave,
The one I posted is from the T&M guide. Below is the link to the first page which states that at the top of the page.
Thanks for the new link. It would interesting to compare these.
The one I will search for was supposedly published by the person who actually did tons of tests and came up with the core data we use today (supposedly).

Hi guys!

Here's another site from the UK. I'm linking their 'germination' page but the rest of the site has lots of great info, including a page w/ seedling images, for identification purposes.

Thanks Dave,
The links are packed with great info. It's hard to image how much time was spent to put together each site.

Thanks Brandon!

No doubt we have the best list of sites.
