Outdoors: Sow 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date. In mild climates, sow in fall for winter bloom. Ideal soil temperature for germination is 55°–65°F.
Indoors: Sow 2-4 weeks before your average last frost date, although not recommended, as roots are sensitive to transplant disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be directly planted in the ground.
