How To Grow 400 seeds/gram. Sow indoors in a soil-less mix in February germinating at 20 C (68 F) for 10-20 days. After germination, grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting out to a sunny site in the garden. Direct garden sow in early May in a full sun to partially shaded location in well drained soil. A late fall sowing can also be attempted. Space the plants 30-45 cm (12-18") apart in the garden.
