Sow seeds 3/4 an inch into the soil and keep the soil moist throughout germination time (3 months). Pro Tip: To monitor temperatures, place seeds in moist paper towel, place paper towel into a ziploc bag, and place the ziploc bagged contents in a warm spot indoors until seeds have sprouted, then sow into the ground. This takes the soil sowing out of the equation during the germination phase.
