To start indoors:  Start your seeds 4-6 weeks before the last frost date in your area.

· Use a good seed starting medium such as Jiffy Mix. Fill seed flat with soil. Pre-moisten the soil and scatter the seeds lightly and evenly over the surface. DO NOT COVER. Seeds need light to germinate.

· Place in a warm location of your home and keep moist (not wet) using a fine misting spray. Seeds will germinate in about 3 to 4 weeks.

· Transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed.  Space plants at least 16 inches apart in full sun to part shade.
