For earlier flowers start seed indoors 6 weeks before date of transplanting out in the garden. Soil temperature should be 21 C (70 F). Seed should germinate in 7 to 10 days. Reduce temperature to near 12 C (58 F) after they sprout for best results. These plants prefer full sun and somewhat alkaline soil. Wet soggy locations should be avoided.
