Transplant – Sow 4 weeks before last frost. Barely cover the seed. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering the seed with displaced soil. After second set of leaves appear, transplant seedlings out to the garden, even if you still expect a few frosts.
Direct seed – Sow just before last frost. Cover seed lightly with soil. Broadcast seeding is not recommended. Keep moist. Thin to desired spacing.
well-moistened rich or clay soil
Plant prefers part shade and evermoist soils, although full sun will be tolerated.
Zones 3 – 8
