Seeds need light to germinate-place the seeds in pots or flats on top of a peat-based potting mix that has been tamped down well. You may sprinkle more potting mix LIGHTLY over them to maintain moisture, but do not bury them. Keep moist-if necessary, place pots in a clear plastic bag. Transplant to a larger pot for a year, then plant in the ground. Generally, prepare the permanent spot as you would any perennial crop. Please see info sheet included with your order.
