How to Grow
Sow directly outdoors anytime from April to August in a sunny spot for flowering in the following year. For first year flowering sow seed indoors in a soil-less mix at the beginning of March – do not cover seed as light aids in germination. Germinate at 20- 25 C (70-80 F) for 14-21 days. Then grow on under lights at a cooler temperature before hardening off and planting outside.
