Scatter seeds directly on the ground and barely cover with soil in mid to late May. Alternatively, to get a jump on the season, start seeds indoors in a soil-less mixture for 6-8 weeks before planting outside in late May. Leave the seed uncovered on the growing medium and apply heat to maintain a temperature of 26°C (79°F) for a 7-14 day germination period. Grow on at 18°C (62°F) until hardening off and transplanting outside.
