They will sprout if sown individually. The only real reason for placing multiple seeds in each cell is to ensure every cell produces as you may encounter some seeds that fail to germinate. Also, multiple seeds in a cell gives you the opportunity later to thin them (if you so desire) to allow only the most vigorous seedling to grow.
