Very easy to grow. Start inside 6-8 weeks before last frost. Start African types earlier than French types. Cover seed with 1⁄4 inches of soil and provide an average soil warmth (75 degrees F). Transplant after last frost into a sunny location. May also be direct seeded 2 weeks before last frost.
Will grow well in poor soil. Space African types 12-18 inches apart, and French types 6-8 inches apart. Deadhead regularly.
