To help get my seedlings off to the best possible start I always use seed starting mix. It's a very finely milled sphagnum moss, holds just the right amount of moisture for tiny new plants, and is easily penetrated by new roots. Other growing mediums can hold too much moisture, making seedlings more susceptible to the fungal disease called damping-off.
