Planting Small Seeds

An easy method for planting smaller seeds over a large area is to use a "fan" or leaf rake to disrupt the top of the soil, sprinkle the seeds over the surface of the area, and then gently re-rake to combine the loose soil with the seeds.

Then, sprinkle water over the area daily and watch your garden sprout. I tried this on a firmly packed area of my yard with marigold seeds and ended up with a virtual "sea" of flowers.
