General Seed Germination Wisdom

As a common gardening rule, do not plant seeds any seed deeper than twice their diameter. Too many websites quote the standard 1/4" deep planting depth, but a more precise approach can yield very different germination results. This general knowledge will enable you to plant seeds without needing to look up germination methods for every variety of seed in stock.

 

In general, seeds should be planted at a depth of two times the width of the seed. For example, if you have a seed that's about 1/16 inch thick, it should be planted about 1/8 inch deep. Large bean seeds, which can be up to 1/2 inch wide, may need to be planted an inch deep.

For tiny seeds, place them on the surface of the soil and barely cover them with soil or vermiculite.

Don't compress the soil atop the seeds as you plant them. The soil should be firm but not compacted. Always keep soil moist until sprouts emerge. Most herb seed varieties will germinate well in soil temperature ranges of 70-80 degrees.
