SEED GERMINATION INFO

Indoors: No pre-treatment necessary other than cold, dry storage. Start at least 4 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 10 C (50 F) range. Seed needs light to germinate, do not cover after planting. Keep moist but not soggy and very warm (21 C - 70 F). When seedlings are 5 cm (2 in.) tall, transplant into the garden spaced 30 cm (1 ft.) apart.

Outdoors: Place seed on the surface of a prepared seed bed in late fall so that the seed overwinters and germinates naturally in spring.
