Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Lightly cover the seeds with soil, as they need light to germinate. Maintain a soil temperature of 65-70°F (18-21°C), keeping the soil evenly moist. Germination should occur in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the risk of frost has passed, spacing plants 12-15 inches apart in full sun and well-draining soil. Provide regular water and feed with a balanced fertilizer throughout the growing season. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage continuous flowering.
