Will try sometime again

I sowed this on a starting pellet last year but failed. Nothing came up but later found a quite big seedling was growing on the bottom of the container that I had put the pellet in. Maybe I didn't water properly. But it was better than seeing nothing at all as it happens sometimes with spinach or some other seeds.

I tried the 1 time in 2 places and neither came up, then tried again in 3 times and nothing at all. I was really disappointed as I was looking forward to seeing the plant
