I think the most important seed was the Boston Massacre, because it was what threw the colonist over the top. I also think this was an important because the colonist or Boston made it look like the riot was all of the British's fault. Paul Revere made it look like the colonist were just walking down the street, and the British soldiers were shooting at them. In reality the colonist were surrounding them, throwing things at them, and taunting them. What might have started from some kids taunting a British soldier turned into an angry mob of people, then which turned into a riot. This is why I think the Boston Massacre was the most important seed of the revolution.
