DAYS TO GERMINATION:10-12 days at 65-70°F (18-21°C)
SOWING: Transplant (recommended) – Sow seeds 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Barely cover seeds as light aids germination. Transplant to cell packs or larger containers when the first true leaves appear. In the greenhouse, grow transplants at 50-55°F (10-13°C) to keep the plants from stretching. Harden off and transplant outside after the last frost. Direct seed – After the last frost date. Successive plantings every 2-3 weeks until midsummer give the best quality flowers and pods. May require support.
