We like to take a one gallon pot filled with soil a half inch below the brim. Water the soil fully and make a small hole in the soil with a chopstick or your pinky finger. Next plant one seed a quarter of an inch in the soil, then fill the hole with soil and add enough water to soak the seed. Be careful to not let the soil get baked in the sun once you have planted the seed, as a freshly sprouted seed needs a few days to establish a tap root.
There are many other methods which you may choose, however this is the method that we prefer.
