When initially putting soil into a pot to grow herbs from seeds does it matter how tightly you pack the soil?

I just started to grow a variety of cooking herbs indoors and I’m wondering if I put the soil in the pots correctly. I put it in rather loosely, and I’m wondering if I was supposed to pack the soil tightly. Any suggestions would be great!

  1. Water the soil lightly. Thats is all the packing needed. Just add soil if necessary. Don’t pack with tools or your hand.

    Those little shoots have to struggle to punch through the dirt. Give ’em a break.
