How to Grow :

Direct seed - Sow after last frost, once soil temperature is above 60°F (16°C), covering seeds lightly. Pinching encourages branching.


 Tall varieties may benefit from some wind protection, such as Hortonova net, used as horizontal support.  Wider spacing creates stronger, thicker stems.
