In spring after all danger of frost is past, plant seeds outdoors in fertile, well-worked garden soil in full sun. Sow seeds 2-4 inches apart, cover very lightly and keep seed bed evenly moist: germination can take several weeks. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin plants to 10 inches apart. Keep watered for best blossoms.
