GREENHOUSE: Sow indoors Apr. 1st. for bedding plant sales. Press seed lightly into the surface, about 1/8 in/3 mm deep, do not cover as seed needs light to germinate. Germinate at 70°F/21°C day and 65°F/18°C night temps. for about 7 days. Maintain these air temps. for about 2 weeks after germination then lower growing temp. to 50°F/10°C to prevent leggy growth. Plants should be ready for sale 6-8 weeks after seeding.

DIRECT SEEDING: Sow outdoors May 20th 1/8 in/3 mm deep, do not cover. Thin or space plants 6 in/15 cm apart. Cut a few plant tops off just after they have blossomed.
