Germination And Growing Tips by David Placing your seeds in less than 1/4 inch of soil will do. It is important to know how deep you should plant your seeds. Seeds are a living embryo that contains enough energy to germinate and break the surface of the soil. If planted too deep, the seeds will run out of energy and die before they break the surface. We recommend planting your seeds 1/4 inch in the soil. Keep your soil moist, but not wet. Over-watering will drown the seed. A good rule to follow is moist soil will have a dark healthy look to it. It will feel like brown sugar on your knuckle. Dry soil will be dull, flaky, and feel like salt. The best watering for germinating is from the bottom. Placing your starter plants in a tray, and filling with 3/4 water, allows them to soak up the water they need. Seeds need enough light to grow. Most seeds need 14 to 16 hours of daylight a day, so if you are planting indoors, a grow light will be needed. A regular florescent or lamp light will not work. Placing your pots on a window sill will not work with most seeds since they do not get the full amount of light. If your seeds are not getting enough light they will grow tall, thin, and then fall over. At David's Garden Seeds, we carry over 2,000 varieties of seeds, in stock, every day.
