Germination: Easy germination. Start indoors 4-6 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seed in container on good seed starting mix. Cover seeds lightly with mix. Moisten mix and keep mix moist until germination begins. Place container in a very warm location at 80°F to 85°F (using a heat mat speeds and increases germination). Germination should begin in 6-10 days. Is not suitable for direct sowing.
