As the seed is very small, we suggest starting the seed under controlled conditions inside rather than scattering on the ground outside.
Start seed 8 weeks early indoors. Carefully sprinkle a small number of seeds on the surface of the each individual container...do not attempt to cover the seed as exposure to light is beneficial for germination. To prevent accidentally covering or dislodging seed, initially water the growing medium from below. Keep at 18-22 C (64-72 F) for the 7-14 day germination period then after that grow on under bright light at 18 C (64 F) before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed. Soil should be of a gritty composition - fast draining of excess moisture but at the same time it needs to be able to retain adequate moisture for growth to occur.
