Default Tiny seed question

Hi All,

I have quail. They will eat an seed they find on
the surface.

Question on how to plant tiny seeds.

When they packet says to plant the 1/4" deep, how
do you guys keep them from floating back out of
their holes when you water them. The watering also
messes with the first 1/4" of the soil too.

I have tried compacting the soil but it makes
no difference.

Do you just give up and plant them 1/2" deep?

Many thanks,
-T
