This is my own experience in seeds germination that involves majorly three techniques that have worked for me most of the times with failing only once in a while for Flowering and Vegetable seeds generally.
Here I have grown Baby corn seeds by two techniques ;
Seeds dispersed on potting soil and then covered with light soil mixture;
Seeds wrapped within Moist tissue paper until germinates ;
There is another method for growing seeds that have hard layer by soaking them for a night in water and then sowing them in soil mixture in the morning .
While all of these techniques work successfully it would be advisable to grow small seeds directly in the soil mixture as there is no need for soaking them in water for germination.
I will add updates about the germination of the above Corn Seeds in the upcoming weeks.

It is a good idea to develop a vertical garden when there is not much space available but still we want to grow plants like in a balcony or on a small piece of land.It is wonderful idea to add some miniature accessories in your vertical garden for enhancing beauty of the garden.

It is fascinating to create a theme based vertical garden in a small space which adorns it much more than mere presence of plants and trees.
