Special Directions for Short Season Climates
SOWING: Sow seeds outdoors after all danger of frost has passed or for earlier blooms start indoors in individual peat pots 2 to 3 weeks before last frost. Soak seed in water for 24 hours prior to planting. Cover seed with 1/4" of fine soil.
THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: Thin to 6 to 8 inches apart when seedlings are 4 inches tall.
GERMINATION: 5 to 10 days at 70°F. Keep soil moist during germination.
Ed's Special Advice
Do not overwater or fertilize. Plant in full sun in well drained somewhat average soil. Do not sow too early, grows best after weather has warmed. Somewhat drought tolerant once established. Start training the vines when about a foot tall.
