Green Thumb Tip
Sow seeds indoors just beneath surface of soil. Success is greatly improved if seeds are placed with soil into a plastic bag and refrigerated for 4-6 weeks. Once removed from refrigeration, place in an area that is between 55-65°F. Plant out after the danger of frost has passed in late spring. Prefers well-drained, somewhat poor soil and is tolerant of drought.
