sorry about the last post! What I meant to say is: The video states 1 seed per block.  Im wondering about very tiny seeds such as marjoram. Still 1? Thank you for all the amazing info on this site. SO appreciated.

Hello Dawn, Yes, go ahead and plant multiple seeds per block if you want. It’s perfectly fine to thin them later. For seeds with a low germination rate like basil or parsley can also benefit from having multiple seeds sown. Good luck!

Been using the soil block system for several years now. Have had great luck with miniblocks for lettuce, herbs, chives (5-10 seeds per block) etc. which I mostly transplant directly to garden without moving to larger blocks. Also good success with digitalis and other flowers. I use the larger 2” blocks for rooting cuttings, too. Love em and love this supplier!
