Additional Information

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 14-21 days at 55-65°F (13-18°C). Presoak seed for 24 hours in room temperature water prior to planting to aid germination.

SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Sow 6 weeks before the last frost, 2-3 seeds 6" apart, 1/4- 1/2" deep. Darkness is required for germination. Thin to 6" apart when true leaves appear.
Transplant: Sow 4-6 weeks before planting out. Sow 2 seeds directly into each cell or 3-4" pot, 1/4- 1/2" deep. Keep soil surface moist until emergence. Thin to one plant when the true leaves appear. Transplant outside as soon as the soil can be worked. Seedlings won't be damaged by a late frost.

GROWING ON: Mulch to keep the roots cool. Pinch when 6-8" tall to encourage denser branching and more flowers. Cutting flowers increases bloom.

PLANT HEIGHT: Varies. Support is needed.



HARVEST: Harvest when half the flowers on a stem are open.
