Planting Instructions

Start seeds in flats about 6 weeks before the last frost. Sow 1/4″ deep, and transplant to individual containers when the seedlings are large enough to handle. Transplant outside in the spring after the last frost. Direct seed: In the spring, direct seed 1/4″ deep as soon as the soil can be worked and after the last frost. Place 4-6 seeds together every 6″ or sow about one seed per inch. Thin to one plant (or a clump of 2-3 seedlings) every 6-12″ when seedlings are a couple of inches tall.
