- Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost date. - Press seeds lightly into soil surface. - Maintain a temperature of 60-70°F (15-21°C). - Keep soil consistently moist. - Transplant seedlings outdoors after last frost in a sunny to partially shaded location.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
