How to sow:
Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Germination can be erratic, so a bit of patience is required. Harden off seedlings and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Pinching is not necessary.
Vines require a trellis or support to climb. Stems for floral design can be harvested at any stage. Cut stems have a tendency to wilt in the heat, so harvest during the coolest parts of the day.
