Any suggestions where Iím going wrong.

Each seed is in a small section of a seedling tray in seed soil, I have not over watered them

Hello and welcome to the forum! I grew teasel in my garden by digging up young plants in the autumn (I had the landowners permission) and re-planting them in my garden. Self sustaining from then on!! I've never tried to grow them from seed though so can't help you there.....
