Germination: Seeds should be planted outdoors in late summer so that they will benefit from the cool and fluctuating temperatures of winter. In spring they will sprout, so be sure to mark the location that you planted the seeds. Please note, these seeds cannot grow without this cold period, so patience is required, though they are well worth the wait! If you choose to start this plant in a pot, you can place the pot in the fridge for the 'winter' (cold) period, which should last about 8 weeks. Then bring the pot to warmth for the seeds to grow, which can still take several weeks.
