How to Grow
This plant may need one full growing season in the garden before it flowers. For a chance at first season bloom, sow indoors in a soil-less mix anytime from January through early March – do not cover the seed as light aids germination. Germinates at 20 C (70 F) in 20 days. After that, grow on under lights at a cooler temperature of 13 C (55 F) before hardening off and transplanting to the garden in a sunny site. 1 pkt sows approx. 1.5 m2 (16 sq.ft.)
