In this study, some properties of mortar specimens produced by method of cement seeding were investigated. In two different experiments, hydrated cement mass were produced by method of cement seeding initially. In first and second experiments, hydrated cement was used at the ratios of 5, 15, 30 % and 2, 3, 5 % respectively, subsequently; strength properties of mortars were determined and discussed in both experiments. The experimental results obtained at the end of tests proved that the method of cement seeding is feasible and this method can be useful for concrete properties.
