I _could_ be all wet on this, but I don't think that "hills" are _necessarily_ actual, literal hills.
However, if indeed they are, it might have something to do with keeping the seedlings feet dry, or warmer, or a combination of same. If you have some way to put a cloche over your seeds they'd probably be happy on the flats too.

You're right, Gonzo. Hills doesn't refer to little mounds of dirt. But to planting in little clusters or groups of 4 or 5 usually in a small circle. These groups may or may not be on mounds, depending on whether the plants prefer a little better drainage or not.
