How to Grow:

In the greenhouse, grow transplants at 50-55°F (10-13°C) to keep the plants from stretching. Harden off and transplant outside after the last frost. Direct seed - After last frost date. Successive plantings every 2-3 weeks until late spring give the best quality flowers and pods. May require support.
Plant supports (such Hortonova used as a horizontal trellis) are required.
