Special Directions for Short Season Climates
SOWING: Start indoors or in greenhouse in early spring or plant directly outdoors in mid spring. Cover seeds with 1/8 inch fine soil.
THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: Transplant seedlings indoors after first pair of true leaves have developed. Space them 4 inches apart or pot them individually in 2 1/2 inch pots. Once plants are established, harden off and transplant outdoors after severe frost danger has passed.
SPACING: Space rows 2 to 3 feet apart depending on space available. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the rows.
GERMINATION: Indoors in 70 degree temperatures, seeds take about 10 days to germinate.
