In the spring, direct sow once the soil has warmed to about 70 degrees F. In order for the seed to germinate, which typically takes 10 to 15 days, press it firmly onto the soil's surface. Light is necessary for the seed to sprout. If you want to start indoors, plant the seed in flats 4–6 weeks before the last frost, maintain the soil just moist enough for germination, and move the seedlings outside as soon as the weather permits. Rich, light soils are ideal for this plant's growth; sow a fresh crop every three to four weeks for continual bloom.
