Massonia seeds

In my experience, Massonia seeds must be covered by some soil, I would say about 3-5 mm cover.  I take a stick and scratch a line in the wet soil, then carefully drop the seeds along the line, press them down, and then sprinkle a bit of sand & palm peat (mixed) into the depression that is left along the line.  To avoid washing the seeds out when watering, you can dribble water between the rows so that the rows themselves are not touched by water.  Once the leaves are about one cm tall the roots should hold them quite firmly in the soil.
