Germination: Slightly difficult, but actually seeds germinate easily but the process is long. Best started indoors 6-8 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seed in between layers of moist paper towels. Place paper towel in sandwich baggie. Place baggie in refrigerator for 8 weeks. Remove seed from refrigerator to a location where temperatures fluctuate (in a garage). Germination should begin as weather warms. Check for germination often. As seed forms a root, pot up to individual containers. ALTERNATIVELY, sow in container in good potting mix covering seeds approximately 1/2" with mix. Place container outdoors in a sheltered locating while freezes still occur. Keep mix moist by placing inside a baggie or water once a week as needed. Check for germination when weather warms.
