Reg Wells has the method, tried and tested. I have used this method for 30 or more years for all types of beans and other seeds including parsnip seed. It is a fool proof way of ensuring that the seed is viable before sowing into small pots or modules. Instead of placing the seed on damp paper I use a 1 inch layer of compost kept nicely moist with the seed set on the surface eye down, place in a poly bag, first shoots will show in approx 7-10 days.
