For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in containers in a coldframe as soon as you receive your seed order. Grow on in any good garden soil rich in organic matter. The addition of dolomite lime, in areas with acid soil, can improve plant health.
