Planting instructions: Requires light for germination. Seeds emerge in 7 to 10 days after cold stratification.

These seeds require cold-stratification for 30 days to germinate successfully. To cold stratify seeds, place the seeds in damp sand, damp vermiculite or between damp paper towels (cover in plastic or place in plastic bags to retain moisture) and store at 36-38 degrees F for 30 days. If seeds sprout during storage, go ahead and pot them. Transplant outside after danger of frost has passed.
