Gardener's Notes: Plant seeds directly in the garden in late fall for germination the following spring or sow in early spring as soon as the soil can be cultivated. Seeds may be started indoors in 8-10 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Plants grow best in well-drained, fertile soil and thrive under dry conditions but my need watering during extended hot, dry weather. Cover with mulch in late fall. Hardy zones 3-9.
