Planting Instructions:
Plant the seeds indoors about 10-12 weeks before the last frost of spring. In a germination flat, press the seed into the surface of the soil; this seed needs light to germinate. Since this seed is tiny, mixing it with sand may help it spread evenly. Keep the soil lightly moist and in a warm place until germination, which usually takes 7-14 days. As soon as the seedlings can safely be handled, transplant them into individual pots; plant them outdoors after the last chance of frost. Water seedlings until they become established. Mature plants tolerate some drought, though they flourish with occasional watering
