Growing Pear Trees from Seed
I started a bunch of pear seeds using the refrigerator method and everything was going great. I got a lot of good sprouts and good little seedlings (about 3 inches tall). But then they just started dying off. The base of the stem turned brown and the seedling fell over and died. It happened with every single one! What did I do wrong? Thank you! Meredith

The seedlings likely suffered from dampening off.
