'Treated' beans and peas?
Hi everyone My dad has given me some pea and broad bean seeds that are covered in a kind of crusty pink coating, and on the packet it says that they have been 'treated' and that gloves should be worn when handling them. I just wondered if anyone had any idea what this coating was or what it's for. I'm ultimately trying to work out if it has any effect on the germination time! Although it has only been a week so not too bad, but worried the recent heat might not be the best germination conditions! Any thoughts? Thanks guys.
