Planting & Care

Plant prefers full sun and sandy, fast-draining soil. Makes an abundant crop of leaves and flower bracts in the first growing season. Standard culture–barely cover seeds and keep moist, warm and in the light until germination. Very good gardeners will be able to direct-seed them in a prepared seedbed. The rest of us will start them in greenhouse or windowsill, grow them on in pots and place to garden 1 foot apart once the soil has really warmed up. The plants are small but potent.
