For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seeds in a container in spring. Cover with vermiculite or perlite and place under protection at 18 degrees Celsius. Or sow in late spring into open ground when air temperature does not go below 10 degrees Celsius at night. Grow as an annual with good drainage in moderately fertile soil that retains some moisture in full sun.
