More haste less seeds!

I've drowned my seedsimage

In my haste to get some seeds going I grabbed a planter and sowed them but I forgot to make holes and now they're drowned and it was about six small packs of seed Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh could kick myself.

    How long were they submerged, is it too late to drain them out?

    If it's only last night they should be fine, 

    what are the seeds? some are fussier than others

  • Can't remember they were mixed all in different packs I didn't keep them because it was "just throw them in and see what comes up" can you tell I;m not a professional gardener just a haphazard one imageimage
