Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Or start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Plants grow well in warm temperatures and can sustain damage if temperatures drop below 50°F. Harvest older leaves and pinch back flower buds for continuous leaf production.
