Growing Instructions:
Northern gardeners may want to start their peanut seeds indoors to get a head start on the season. Plant the peanut seeds for sale 1" deep in large peat pots and keep at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination; transplant them as soon as the soil temperature reaches an average of 60-70 degrees F. In warmer climates, direct sow around the time of the last frost by planting the seeds 3" deep and 5" apart; later, thin plants to 10" apart. Peanuts need full sun and soil with good drainage. When the plant reaches 12" tall, mound up the dirt around it and add mulch to conserve moisture and keep the soil soft. The tops of the faded flowers, also called pegs or peduncles, will bury themselves in the earth and begin to develop peanuts. Water the plants if the weather gets dry.
