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 http://www.walterreeves.com/food-gardening/uga-vegetable-gardening-publications/.
