Make a little drill (trench) in the soil, and then water it well before sprinkling the seeds.
This helps in a few ways:
- The seed will be touching moist soil and will be less likely to fly away during windy conditions.
- You won’t have to water after sowing and potentially wash away the super light seeds.
- You are putting the seed in direct contact with moisture, rather than it getting stuck into a pocket of dry under the top covering of soil.
I did this at my community garden plot, during a super windy day and it worked great. No seeds were lost to the wind, and I’ll keep you updated on the germination once it happens.
