Transplants are best. Scarify seeds by nicking or filing a notch and soak overnight in warm water or a weak solution of Chamomile tea. - Sow 1/4- 1/2" deep into 72-cell flats or preferred deep-cell seedling container, 4-5 weeks before planting out. Darkness is required for germination. Keep seedlings cooler after two-leaf stage. Direct seed 6 weeks before last frost. Seedlings can tolerate a light frost. Put trellis in place and pinch when 6-8" tall to encourage more blooms.
