Flowers are pollinated by bees and other insects. Mature flower capsules will harmlessly 'explode' when handled.

How To Grow 125 seeds/gram. Heirloom. Sow outdoors where they are to bloom after the danger of frost has passed. For an earlier start, sow seed 4-6 weeks early indoors. Light is required for germination so do not cover seed with the soil-less mix. Seed germinates in 7-14 days at 21 C (70 F). After that, grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site in the garden. Space plants 30 cm (12") apart in the garden. In areas with very hot summers, a couple of hours of shade in the afternoon is beneficial
