Vegetables – Is Depth Important?

Q: Is there a guide about the depth of planting vegetable seeds? I need to know how deep to plant different vegetables.

A: A general rule of thumb is to plant seeds an inch deep. The soil is warm at that depth and the seedling have enough soil in which to form anchor roots. I have a collection of UGA vegetable gardening publications plus a full chart of seed planting depths at bit.ly/UGAgardening.
