  1. Start the seeds indoors under grow-lights in early spring, moving them to the garden six weeks later. These plants take awhile to grow and produce a crop so plant them in good soil where they’ll receive plenty of sun and be patient. Harvest the gorgeous flowerbuds as they sprout to keep production going. When the cold weather arrives in autumn, cover plants with a mini hoop tunnel or mulch deeply with straw. In spring the plants should send out more flower shoots to harvest, and if you’re lucky, continue to produce for months. If the plants are still growing strong the following autumn, protect them again for winter.
