Many great gardeners face problems with their gardens and will come to the internet in search of answers. There are many common problems that can be solved easily with the correct know-how.
One very common issue is seedlings not emerging in flowerbeds. This may sound crazy but think about the seedlings and the surroundings. Could you have been weeding and have accidentally pulled out what was in fact an emerging seedling? A very easy way to solve this issue is to plant seedlings in rows and spread them evenly apart. This help to identify the weeds as they will grow erratically rather than in straight lines making them easier to spot. Also, the use of seedling trays is a good idea. These can be filled with compost with less(if any) weed growth and gives the seedling nutrition also. Then once they reach a manageable size they can be potted or planted.
