Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before planting outdoors. Harden off and transplant outdoors with the late frosts of spring. Seedlings won’t be harmed by a late frost. Seeds may also be direct sown in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Pinch seedlings when 6” tall.
Select a planting site with rich, well-draining soil. Provide plants with climbing support. Deadhead regularly to ensure continuous bloom. Keep plants well-watered through warmer weather. 75-85 days to maturity.
