Germination: Easy germination. Start indoors 2-4 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seed in container on good seed starting mix. Cover seeds lightly. Moisten mix and keep mix moist until germination begins. Place container in a location at 70°F. Germination should begin in 6-10 days. Does well direct sown to garden location (or in a large container) after last spring frost, however, I find I contend with more weeds when I direct sow to the garden (no weeds in container).
