Note: This plant family is known to have toxicity. The ingestion of these seeds or this plant can cause serious illness or death.
Germination: These seeds are very easy to germinate! Plant seeds in spring, after the danger of frost is past. Rake the ground, and then scatter the seeds on the raked ground. Lightly rake them in, so that they are just covered by the soil, being careful that they are not too deep. Water the area, and keep it continually moist until plants begin to grow. Once they are established they are somewhat drought tolerant. These seeds can also be started early indoors. If you live in a warm climate these seeds can be started outdoors in fall or winter.
