How to Grow
500 seed/gram. Direct seed outdoors in mid to late May 3 mm (1/8") deep. Seed can be started indoors 6-8 weeks before planting out. Sow seed 3 mm (1/8") deep in a soil-less growing medium and keep the temperature between 16-21 C (60-70 F) for the 10-14 day germination period. Grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature then harden off and plant out in late May spacing at 30 cm (12") apart in the garden. Pinch back plants when 10-15 cm (4- 6") high to promote full flowering later in the season. Best in full sun but will still grow well in slightly shaded sites.
