Planting Instructions:


Soil Preparation:

Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost in well-draining containers in >60F area. Keep moist. Transplant when plants are <4" and ground is >60F. Or, sow outdoors in moist, fertile, well-draining soil in full sun when soil is >70F. Drought-tolerant once established.

Planting Depth: 1/2 inch
