Hops seeds can be slow to germinate. Use a process called "cold scarification" to encourage hop seed germination. A good method is to put seeds in an equal amount of moist sand and refrigerate from one to three months at about 5C (41F) degrees. After that, plant the seeds at 20C (68F) degrees, for one to two months. If the hops seeds have not germinated, put them back in the refrigerator and repeat the cycle.
