How To Grow

After danger of frost has passed, seeds are best planted directly outdoors. Sow seeds in a prepared seedbed of loosened soil. Soil should also be fertile and well-drained. Plant seeds at a depth of 1/2 inch and cover. Space the seeds 6 inches apart, and keep slightly moist until germination. The seeds will germinate in about 10-14 days. Once seedlings are established, thin plants to a spacing of 12-18 inches. Tall and over-burdened plants may require a support such as a stake to avoid leaning or drooping.
