If you can put both feet flat on the ground while sitting on the saddle, your saddle is way too low (unless we're talking about BMX or downhilling).
Here's a good way to get in the ball-park for correct saddle height. Pedal with your heels on the pedals; your knees should lock out, but your hips should not rock to reach the pedals. That way, when you have the balls of your feet on the pedals, your knees will be slightly bent at full extension. Fine-tune from there.
