Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors when soil is warm and
temperature does not drop below 65°F. Can also be
started indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out. Make
successive sowings for continuous summer supplies.
Pinch back flower stalks as they appear to keep
plants from bolting. Prefers rich well-drained soil.
