Planting Instructions:

TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds directly into well-worked garden soil in full sun once all danger of frost is past. Space seeds 3 inches apart and cover about 1/4 inch deep. Keep soil evenly moist. Germination takes 7 to 10 days. When seedlings are about 3 inches tall, carefully thin them to a final spacing of 9-12 inches apart because these vigorous, tall plants need room to grow and bloom. Extra thinned seedlings can be transplanted easily.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds several inches apart in a container of well-drained seed starting mix 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost date. Cover 1/4 inch deep, keep moist and provide a strong light source until ready to go outside. Transplant 9-12 inches apart once weather warms up and nights are above 55° F (13° C).
