Northern gardeners may want to start their peanut seeds indoors to get a head start on the season. Plant the peanut seeds for sale 1" deep in large peat pots and keep at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination; transplant them as soon as the soil temperature reaches an average of 60-70 degrees F. In warmer climates, direct sow around the time of the last frost by planting the seeds 3" deep and 5" apart; later, thin plants to 10" apart. Peanuts need full sun and soil with good drainage.
