For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed outdoors in a seedbed or containers in fall. Stratification improves germination. Grow in moderately-fertile humusy, moist but well-drained soil in part to full shade, but will tolerate more sun if the soil is kept moist.
