How to Grow
Sow directly outdoors anytime spring through fall or start 10 weeks early indoors in a soil-less mix at 3 mm (1/8″) depth. Germinate at 20 C (70 F) for 7 to 14 days then grow on at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Needs darkness to germinate. Space plants 15 cm (6″) apart in the garden. Cut back in mid summer when these plants tend to get straggly. This often encourages new growth and further bloom when temperatures moderate in late summer/early fall.
