Had some fun with moose nuggets last year.
Drill a hole in the flat end about 3/8" deep. (one end tapered, one end flatter, by nature)
Drop in a broccoli seed & cover. (I used sand & MN drill dust)
keep them moist. (I used a small tray with sand so they'd stand straight)
Wa-La, Nature made seed starters.
Learned it works, not enough nutrients so need to drop in a
4" pot & keep moist for roots to work into new soil.
Fun stuff you can do in Alaska.
I think if you drill a little larger & deeper hole, add some good soil then the seed & cover
then maybe then soak them in some water with mild dissolved plant food would help.
It is kinda fun though
