Growing Tips:

Direct sow 2-4 seeds per 12" diameter mound. Keep mounds 2'-3' apart. Plant in warm soil. Thin to 1 or 2 strongest plants. Mulch at base of plant.  

If starting seeds indoors, it is key that your new starts be hardened off.  This is a process that requires taking them outside during the day, for a period of time, before they are planted. This acclimates your seedlings to the outside world, meaning the elements like the wind and sun. We do it for several weeks to a month as this strengthens their stems and overall plant structure. 

  • Start for a short period of time initially, then graduate to more time each day
  • One week minimum is recommended
  • Bring them inside in the early evening and overnight
  • Keep an eye on them and constantly water them. Make sure they have not blown
