Planting and Growing Tips:
Great for arbors trellises and other structures, this vigorous annual thrives in areas with full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Direct sow outdoors 1/4 inch deep after the last frost of spring and keep moist while germinating. Seeds can be slightly chipped and soaked for better results. Thin seedlings 4- to 6-inches apart and provide support so plants can climb. A nice layer of mulch around plants will help conserve moisture loss, improve aesthetics and reduce weeds.
