I'm in Edmonton Alberta and I want to start some sweet peas indoors. I've read to soak them overnite in warm water. other places say don't soak them. some say to nick the seed with nail clippers. Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't think it matters. I do soak mine on a paper towel overnight to get them started--what you want to see is the seed swell up, which means it's viable. Then plant in peat pellets or whatever. I have never had to "nick" them.

I agree... the ones that float after soaking are no good :) I have always just soaked mine, and they grow great!
