Planting seeds in your square foot garden

Before planting seeds in your square foot garden, moisten the soil. Use a spray nozzle on a hose and soak it well. Soaking larger seeds overnight before planting will also help to hasten sprouting. Using a pencil or your finger make holes about 2 inches deep in your 12" square. Pour seeds into the palm of your hand and drop 2-3 seeds in each hole. You will have used very few of the seeds from your packet so you can now save the rest air tight in a cool dry place for next year. Be sure to keep your newly planted garden soil moist for the next two weeks. The sprouting of your seeds will depend on the weather. It needs to be somewhat warm and sunny for a period of time for your plants to sprout.
