DAYS TO GERMINATION:7-10 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C).
SOWING: Transplant:Sow 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Barely cover seed. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering seeds with displaced soil. Harden off by growing at 62-65°F (17-18°C) and transplant outside after last frost.
Direct seed:After last frost, sow thinly, barely covering the seed. When seedlings have first true leaves, thin to 12-15″ apart. May require support.
