Planting Directions: Sow seed indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last frost with a soil temperature 75° to 95°. Plant seed ¼” deep in sterile seed starting mix. 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.
