Keeping seed starter peat wet
I started some seeds a couple weeks ago (144 plastic cells in two flats) using Scott's Seed Starter mix. Lots of peat. I can't keep the durned stuff wet! I think it's wet, but when I move the top layer, everything in the middle is dry. I've got the drip trays full of water now to try to bottom water, but it's not soaking up. It's like the stuff is water repellant. Some of my seeds have started (small and slow, but they've started), so I can't remove it and mix it up with more water. Any one else ever have this problem???
