Direct sow in spring after the last chance of frost sowing on the surface of the soil. Press the seeds down lightly and keep moderately moist until germination which takes about 2 weeks. To start indoors, sow on the surface of a flat 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Keep the soil slightly moist and at room temperature. Transplant or thin the seedlings as soon as they reach a height of several inches. Water regularly until established and then only occasionally.
