How To Grow 400 seeds/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors in mid May or for earlier flowering, start indoors in a soil-less growing medium from mid March through to early April. Keep seed at the surface as light aids in germination. Seed will germinate in 7-15 days at 21 C (70 F). Note: Germination can be irregular and ranges from 50-80 %. Grow on indoors under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed. Dead head to promote continued flowering.
