Seeds can be either directly sown, or sown indoors depending on the final frost date of the desired environment. Direct sow around the final frost date. If the final frost date in your environment is later in the year, sow indoors. To do so, transplant seedlings outside after 4-6 weeks. Plants thrive in full sun when watered often. Fertilizer will also help with growth by providing nitrogen to the soil. Harvest buds in the summer by clipping them off individually when they reach their full size. For best results, harvest buds when they are 4-5” in diameter.
