How To Grow 320 seeds/gram. For spring transplants, sow seed indoors in a soil-less mix in early April. Germinate in 15-25 days at 24-27 C (75-80 F) temperature range - be patient as some seed germinates readily while other seed can keep you waiting. After germination, grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside to a sunny spot after the danger of frost has passed. Direct garden sowing is best from mid to late June. Tritoma prefer well drained, warm soils.
