Germination Tip:
Start seeds indoors 6 -8 weeks before transplant date. Sow 1/8” deep and keep soil moist and warm at 70-80˚F. Germination takes 5-10 days. Move to bright light once the first seedling emerges. Transplant to larger containers when the first two true leaves appear. Fertilize once or twice with dilute organic solution. Harden off plants outside before transplanting to garden.
