{how to plant} 
Before planting soak seeds overnight in warm water. Start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last spring frost, or outdoors where desired after frost danger has passed. Plant seeds 1/4" deep. If seeds are planted in the fall no soaking is necessary unless your region is prone to drought in winter.
