Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Barely cover seeds with fine soil firming into the soil with the back of your hand. Sow seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before last frost for earlier blooms or sow seeds directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed.

THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: Thin or carefully transplant young seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart. Harden off indoor started seedlings and transplant after danger of frost has passed.

GERMINATION: 10 to 20 days depending upon weather and soil conditions. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Plants grow best in a sunny location in average well drained soil. Keep plants fairly well watered and avoid spraying foliage. Remove blossoms as they fade to prolong blooming period. Plants may reseed or live over in mild winter climates.
