Additional Information

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-10 days at 75-80°F (24-27°C).

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Sow 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Do not cover seed as light aids germination. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering seed with displaced soil. Transplant to cell packs or larger containers when the first true leaves appear. Harden off and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. No pinching or support is needed.
Direct seeding is not recommended.
