Pre-cool @ 35-40°F/2-4°C for 24 hours. Cover seed lightly with sand or Jiffy Mix. Cover flat (needs darkness for germination) with newspaper or black plastic. Soil temp 70-75°/21-24°C at seed level (bottom heat). Average germ. in soil 60-70% in 10 days. Use low acid soil (pH) when transplanting. Grow seedlings at 45-50°F/7-10°C for better growth. For larger spring blooms, sow by July 5th into raised and fresh soil beds, keep weeded. Cover with straw mulch during winter.
