So, you have your equipment and workplace ready. You can soil your seeds in water to help germinate or you can directly sow seed into the soil.
Put your seed starting mix into your seed tray and fill to the top. Compact the soil then add more soil.
Sow two seeds in the center or one on two corners opposite of each other, about 1/2 to 1 inch deep. Sowing two seeds will help germination, in case one seed does not germinate. If both center seeds germinate, remove the weakest leaves. More on this later.
After covering your seeds, mist the top with water. You will want to water from the bottom of the tray from now on. Keep the soil most but not wet.
Waiting game begins.
