Depending on the geographical areas and altitude sowing can take place from February to April. To obtain a more regular and faster germination pre-chill the seeds for 21 days before the sowing. It is possible to use a sowing substrate for potting or soil from the garden together with a sowing substrate if the sowing is made directly into the garden. The substrate must be wet but not soggy until the germination is completed.
