  • Start indoors in plug trays or small pots from February to April.  Starting indoors is more reliable than direct sowing.  Sow the seeds on the surface of dampened, sterilized seed starting mix under bright light with bottom heat. Keep watering to a minimum.  After seeding or transplanting, keep the soil moist and well weeded. When seedlings are large enough, harden them off and transplant to the garden or to containers spacing them 9-15″ apart.  Grow in full sun.
