Seed Flats

Hi all,

In the past I have used Park's Starts for seed starting. I love them, no
complaints. However, I have about 2,000 seeds to start and I decided to try
the 'flat' method. Since I don't want a flat of each (there isn't that much
open ground in Southern CA anymore), I bought some half flats (11" x 11")
from Charlie's.

These come each with a clear cover (to retain humidity) but no holes in the
bottom of the flats. I hate to admit to such abject stupidity (probably
comes from washing too many dishes) but it is what it is: Some flats have
holes and some don't. I never did understand this distinction. Do I only
need to punch some holes in the flat bottoms if I intend to water from the
bottom (from a tray or mat)? Are the flats w/o holes for people who
top-water? Thanks!
