Germination: Place seed packet in the refrigerator for 5 days prior to sowing. Then soak seeds for 3 days in warm water.

The above germination method was that of the commercial supplier.   I'm in growing zone 5, and I sowed my seeds direct to garden location the first of May and they germinated at a very high rate.
