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.  We recommend Garden Row Cover be used to maintain consistent warm growing environment and to keep insects away from the plants.
