Growing Instructions:

Germinates best in warm soil at 27-32°C with moderate moisture.

Plant Spacing : 12-18" apart. Row Spacing: 24-36" apart.

Seed ¼ inch deep, 8 weeks before last frost. When first true leaves appear, transplant into 4 inch pots. Transplant out after last frost. Ideal seedlings will have buds, but no open flowers when ready to plant out. Transplants will benefit from being watered with a high phosphorus solution when first planted.
