Special Directions for Short Season Climates
SOWING: Sow seeds indoors in March or April. Sow 2 seeds in individual peat pots or other containers barely covering seeds with 1/8 inch starter mix. Place pots in plastic seed flat with no drainage holes. Carefully pour warm water into flat, the moisture will soak up from the bottom. Keep in warm room and provide lots of light.
THINNING: When seedlings are about 2 inches high, carefully cut weaker plants leaving strongest single plant per pot. Avoid over thinning to keep best diversity of varieties.
GERMINATION: 2 to 3 weeks at 65' to 70'F. Keep soil moderately moist.
