(Input number of packets into checkbox -- $1.00 per packet)
[50 seeds per packet]
Germination: Easy germination. Seed may be started indoors 2-4 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seed in container on good seed starting mix (or they seem to do even better when using straight vermiculite moistened -- that's what I use when I start seed indoors). Do not cover seeds or cover seeds lightly. Moisten mix. Place container inside sandwich baggie. Place container in a location at 70°F. Germination should begin in 6-10 days. Remove baggie once germination begins. Otherwise sow direct outdoors to where they are to be grown 2-3 weeks prior to last spring frost.
