Mound planting is often used in warmer climates because the mounds retain water better than traditional row planting. It’s also used in areas that have torrential rainfall because the mounds protect the seeds better.
Basically, you till and loosen the soil. Then you form a mound of soil with a trowel and your hands. Use a stick to poke 3 holes into the top of the mound. Plant a seed (or two) in each hole. Then cover the holes with loose soil. Carole explains how she waters the sugar pumpkin seeds.
This is a separate video by another gardener that demonstrates mound planting.
