You can also...
...start your seeds in pots or flats then transplant the strongest healthiest plants into the garden at the proper spacing.
...make your own seed tape, internet search "make your own seed tape" for more detailed instructions but basics are you sit at the table indoors with a piece of toilet paper and glue the seeds down to the tp at the proper spacing the plant the seed imbedded paper in the garden (or pots)
I think the biggest mistake of planting is seeds too deep. rule of thumb - size of seed, that is the depth to plant. Some small flower seeds need light or darkness to germanate, if your having trouble with flowers I'd check into that aspect. Be careful when you water because water from the top can dislodge seeds and wash them deeper.
