Tricks for Planting

Seeding flowers in the garden does require a little bit of know-how. For example, if you want the seeds to sprout, you had better not mulch or apply a pre-emergence herbicide. Steps for hand seeding:

  • Select an empty spot.
  • Prepare the soil by adding any necessary amendments, such as compost, peat, or ground bark.
  • Rake the soil surface smooth, removing rocks and sticks.
  • Sow seeds evenly over the soil, using a rake to barely cover them; then water gently.
