Direct sow 3-4 seeds per plant, 18" apart, on the soil surface in full to partial sun and gently cover the seeds with a thin coating of topsoil. For continuous blooming into late fall, plant a new crop every two weeks. To start indoors, sow the seed in a flat or peat pots 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost; keep the soil lightly moist and the temperature around 65-70°F until germination, which should occur within 7-21 days. Transplant the seedlings as soon as they can safely be handled and there is no chance of frost.
