Planted seeds too deep? Empty Planted seeds too deep?

Post  buttaflie143 Sat May 14, 2011 1:51 pm

I think I have made a major boo boo. After I planted bean, pea, carrot, and herb seeds, the "rascal" went through my box. So I replanted. Then it rained a ton and the mix settled quite a bit, so my husband and I made a small batch of MM and added it to the box to bring the depth to 10 inches (will probably settle to Cool. Anyway, now I am wondering if those seeds will make it up and out or if they will even germinate at all. What should I do? I don't want to miss the seed planting window.

What I've learned: Carrot seeds take forever and a day to germinate and need to be surface sown. I planted my peas and beans pretty deep, they took a while but popped up but now that they did they look amazing. A few other things got planted too deep and never popped up so I went searching for them..... probably not recommended. I pulled them up carefully, cucumber, melons, and pumpkin, they had yellow seedling leaves deep under ground, I raised them above ground level and barred the roots very carefully and now they are all coming in beautifully. I'm a first year gardener so I maybe doing it all wrong, but that's what my experience has been so far. Best of luck!

Planted seeds too deep? 1275063211 if you replant and more come up you can always thin.

Up to you! But I would go with too many plants in the square, you can always pull some out. Smile

I didn't think of that. BTW, the butterfly is too cute. Where did you get it?

Always refer back to the book. Page 121......

"Too Deep Isn't a Problem

You don't have to worry too much about placing your seed too deep, in part because your Mel's Mix is loose and friable....This is one of the hidden advantages of starting with perfect soil. It almost guarantees that all of your seeds will grow into plants."
