Again, probably a first-timer mistake

Planted along a south-facing fence. Nothing came up. Perhaps wood chip mulch too thick?

Owner Response: Hi Jennifer, It is a good idea to remove mulch from an area that you want to sow seeds. Mulch is wonderful for helping the soil stay moist and also stifling weed and other seeds as they come up. We sure hope you will try again. Happy gardening!
