Seeds not growing

Hi all...Im after some advice please.  I built a raised bed and put in some well rotted horse manure and new compost then covered it in a few layers of fleece to warm up the soil ready for planting.. 

After a couple of weeks I planted some seeds then about 10 days after that we had about 6 inches of snow which I cleared off the fleece. 

My question is will these seeds grow now and if not will it be ok just to leave them in the soil. and re-plant them. I planted carrots, beetroot, parsnip .

thanks in advance for your help
