Make sure the soil is loose and moist before planting. If the soil seems not loose enough, add sand or ash to the grooves before planting.

This will help protect plantings from unexpected frosts, prevent the growth of weeds, retain moisture in the soil and prevent it from drying out. Do not press the teeth into the soil, do not sprinkle them with earth and refrain from covering the plantings with film.
