DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C)

SOWING: Transplant (recommended) - Sow 8-10 weeks before last frost. Pinching encourages branching.

Bottom water or mist lightly to avoid covering the seed with displaced soil. Transplant to packs or larger containers when the first true leaves appear, approximately 3-4 weeks after sowing. If desired, pinch back to 1 1/2-2" when the seedlings are about 3-4" tall to encourage branching.Direct seeding is not recommended.
