Once seed germinates reduce temperature to 70°. Harden off seedlings for at least one week prior to transplanting by reducing air temperature to 60° and reducing watering. Set plants out when soil temperature is consistently at least 80?, spacing plants 18-24” apart. Plant in soil rich in compost or soil that has been amended with a general garden fertilizer.  We recommend Garden Row Cover be used to maintain consistent warm growing environment and to keep insects away from the plants.
