Type: Annual, blooms first year from seed
Note: Many commonly-grown seeds and plants contain poisonous parts, this included. Please keep these seeds and plants in a safe place, and handle with care.
About pellets: Pelleting is a coating that is sometimes applied to small seeds, to help with handling and sowing. Once the seeds are sown and watered, the pelleting is designed to immediately disintegrate to release the seeds.
Seeds per pack: 20
Germination: Start seeds indoors in late winter or spring, at temperatures of 70F/21C. Your planting container should have holes at the bottom for drainage, with a tray below to catch excess water. Sprinkle the seeds on the surface of a pre-moistened seed-start mix. Do not bury the seeds, as they require light for germination. Keep moist until seedlings are established. Watering can be done from the bottom tray, allowing water to wick upwards. Alternatively, watering can be done from the top using a spray bottle, as not to disturb the seeds and/or small plants.
