||Does changing the temperature change the speed of germination. Does depth of the seed change the shape or pattern of growth. We will pick one of these questions to test and study.
||Does Marion mi garden soil need fertilizer to have a better germination rate.
||We believe that the soil with Burpee seed starting mix(fertilizer) will have a better germination rate.
||We will have two pots of Marion Mi garden soil and two pots of Marion Mi garden soil with Burpee seed starting mix. Both pots have 5 seeds in them. Then see which one will have a better germination rate. We will also water them in on first three days then leave them for three day and then water them for three days repeat for 8 days.
||Over the 8 days we have been testing Does Marion mi garden soil need fertilizer to have a better germination rate. In the 8 days we have had 4 plants germinate out of the 10 in Marion mi garden soil with fertilizer and 2 plants out of the 10 in just Marion mi soil. This data lets us prove that Marion mi soil needs fertilizer to improve the germination rate of the plants.
During this experiment we have picked up more questions than answers like is Marion mi soil the same all around this test may continue for future experiments this was only the beginning .
