How to Grow
Start indoors in a soil-less mix in March using peat pots (as this perennial resents transplanting) for easy transplanting to the garden in late May. Better yet sow seed directly outdoors in early May or late fall. Cover seed with a fine sifting of soil and keep moist during the germination period. Sow 5 g per 2 sq. m. (20 sq. ft.).
