Special Directions for Short Season Climates
SOWING: Directly into the garden in early spring, as soon as the soil is workable. Plant seed in a trench 6" deep and cover with 1" of fine soil. As plants become established fill in trench gradually.
TRELLIS SUPPORT: Provide string and trellis support when vines are 3-6 inches tall.
GERMINATION: Completely dependent upon outdoor temperatures and soil warmth. Usually 10 days to 2 weeks. For quicker germination soak seeds overnight before planting.
Ed's Special Advice
When possible plant rows in a north-south direction for best sun exposure and good air circulation. Keep moist throughout the growing period. Keep flowers picked to ensure flowering for the longest possible time. Plants prefer rich, well cultivated soil.
