I put these seeds in a card board box with potting soil and topped with sand and they sprouted in one week left outside. I live in coastal California, bay area and it was toward the end of winter and during a random cold snap. They still spouted and did not die during the cold weather that went to upper 40's lower 50's. I believe about 75 to 80% sprouted. I sprinkled them on top of the potting soil and covered with sand. Thanks David's Seeds!

Germination Tips

When starting seeds, the most important thing to remember is not to plant the seeds too deep. Believe it or not, less than 1/4 inch deep into the dirt will do.

The seed is a living embryo that contains enough energy to germinate and break the surface. But if planted too deep, it will run out of energy and die before it breaks the surface.

Keep the soil moist, but not wet, with a temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Over watering will drown the seed. Here is a good rule to follow: The dirt should be moist like brown sugar up to the first knuckle of your finger. If it is dry like salt, the dirt is too dry for your seeds to germinate. If it is wet like cake batter, then it is too wet.

The best watering is bottom watering. Put your starter pots in a tray and let them soak up the water they need until they germinate. Pour the water in the tray, not in each pot. Watering the top of the pot can dislodge the germinating seeds and kill them.

Seeds should germinate in about 7 to 14 days, and sometimes even 21 days, depending on the seed type.

If you are starting your seeds indoors, seeds need 12 to 14 hours of daylight a day. A grow light will be needed. A regular florescent or lamp light will not do the job.

This means you will need to make a small investment. Putting your pots on a window sill will not work in most cases. If the seeds do not get enough light, they will grow tall and thin and then die.
