How to Plant RED HOT POKER Seeds

Sow seed 6-8 weeks before planting out, use a deep container to avoid disturbing the tap root. Barely cover. Light aids germination. Kept at 70-75° F., germination is in 21-28 days. Can direct sow into prepared seed beds, in groups of 3-4 seeds spaced 1-1.5 feet apart. Thin to the strongest plant.
