Why You Should Never Plant Seeds In Wet Soil
Instead of buying a plant, purchasing seeds is a much more affordable and rewarding way to grow plants yourself. As seeds cover a large area of your garden, it’s a fairly easy process, but there are some major mistakes you'll want to avoid to ensure that your seeds blossom into beautiful plants.
Do not plant your seeds in wet soil because too much water causes your seeds to deteriorate. Use quick-draining potting soil instead of normal dirt, and be sure the soil is able to retain enough water to keep the soil moist but not soggy.
Sprouted seeds are still very sensitive to extreme temperatures, moisture levels, and other factors. "Damping off" happens when spouted seeds get too much water and die, so protect them by watering them one or two times daily until the seeds grow before scaling back.
