BEST TO START DIRECTLY OUTDOORS
In early spring, after all danger of frost is past, plant in a well-prepared garden bed in full sun. Shake packet to mix. Scatter the seed thinly and evenly over finely worked soil, aiming to have the seeds about an inch or so apart. Cover lightly, about 1/4 inch deep, and gently firm the soil over the seeds—a rake is handy for this step. Water thoroughly and evenly with a very gentle spray. Keep the seedbed moist while awaiting germination and while flowers are actively growing for the most blossoms..
