Planting guide: Plant out of doors after danger of frost. Cover about one inch deep, pressing the soil down firmly. The plants should be given some support to climb on. Seed can also be started indoors for an earlier harvest.
These items are useful when starting seeds indoors for transplanting:
Jiffy-7 Peat Pellets
Peat Pots, 2 1/4" round
Peat Pots, 3" round
3" square pots
4 1/2" round pots
For protecting your transplants against late, unexpected frosts choose between Hotkaps plant protectors and Wall O' Water plant protectors.
