I am making my first attempt at doing so, indoors to begin with. How far down into the soil do the seeds go, I have no clue. Is it one little seed then a space or can a couple go together.

It's best to plant about 3 seeds in each cell because they may not all grow. Then if they do, thin them out to one plant per cell. They should be lightly dusted with soil or no more than 2 or 3 cm under the soil for best germination.
