Germination: Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. For best results, obtain a sterile seed-start mix, and place the seeds just under the surface of the pre-moistened growing medium. Keep moist until germination, which can take about 4 weeks. You can cover the container with clear plastic if you wish, to retain moisture until germination until you see growth.

Though you should have germination after 4 weeks, if your seeds have not yet emerged, they may need some help to know that it is time to grow. If this happens, place the growing container in the fridge for 6 weeks, and then bring the container back to room temperature. This will signal the warming of spring, and time to grow. They should emerge within 6 weeks of being brought back to warmth. Once seeds emerge, place in a sunny place, outdoors if temperatures permit.
