This research was carried out in the climate chamber in order to determine the effect of hydrosols obtained from sage grown with selenium application on germination of fenugreek and coriander seeds. Different concentrations of sage hydrosol (2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 ml) and purified water used as control were applied to the fenugreek and coriander seeds. Germination rate, fresh weight, dry weight, root length, shoot length and root / shoot ratio of fenugreek and coriander seeds were applied. Variance analysis was performed according to the split plot design and the mean values were compared with LSD test. According to the results of the research; germination rate of fenugreek seeds 38.35-51.00%, fresh weight 0.04-0.12 g, dry weight 0.001-0.035 g, root length 0.71-2.02 cm, shoot length 1.27-3.20 cm, root/shoot ratio varied between 0.34-0.82, germination rate of coriander seeds 18.61-39.21%, fresh weight 0.0011-0.034 g, dry weight 0.004-0.030 g, root length 1.5-4.58 cm, shoot length 1.08-3.69 cm, root/shoot ratio 0.47-2.51 were found. The highest germination rate was obtained in 2.5 ml dose of sage hydrosol (51.00%) in fenugreek seeds and the highest germination rate was found in 7.5 ml dose of sage hydrosol (39.21%) in coriander seeds.
