When can I plant seeds after sprouting?

Keep a close eye on the seeds, and plant them in containers or directly into the garden as soon as they sprout. Handle them very carefully – they are fragile at this stage. Sprout seeds just until they've germinated to avoid snapping off tender roots. Keep the young plants consistently moist after planting.

After 3 to 5 days, the seeds should pop open and a tiny root should come out. As soon as the sprout is 2 to 3 mm, you can carefully get the seeds out of the water and plant them in the soil. Put them 0.5 to 1 cm in the soil with the root down.

Furthermore, should I sprout seeds before planting? Pre-sprouting is also helpful when the soil temperature may be a bit too warm. Sprouting seeds before planting cuts down on the germination process drastically. It can take seeds 7 to 20 days to sprout in soil, whereas pre-sprouting takes 2-4 days. Once they sprout, they can be planted in the ground or containers.
