direct sowing with leaf mulch?

I've been trying to amend my soil because it definitely needs help, so one of the things I did this year was add leaf mulch. I'm wondering now though about direct sowing. In the past couple years, I figured out for me in my climate, it was best just to direct sow my larkspur and poppies. They just weren't happy being transplanted. Can I just sow the seeds on top of the leaf mulch though? Or should I dig below the mulch and get into the soil? Will the seeds push up through leaf mulch?

Thanks you guys!
