Water gently.

Once seeds are planted and covered keep the soil evenly moist. Water gently. A blast of water will uproot the seeds and send them flying. If the soil dries out the seeds may not germinate. If the soil is too moist the seeds may succumb to a fungus or blight.

Mark where you planted your seeds.

It’s always a good idea to mark where you planted your seeds and what you planted there so you don’t mistake the seeds you carefully planted for weeds.
