Sow seeds indoor from February to March and sow seedlings outside in May after the last possible frost.
Soaking them in water, the night before planting, seems to help speed germination. Germination can be erratic, but you should see sprouts within 7-15 days.
When planting, tuck the seeds into the soil vertically, with the longest edge facing down, and barely cover with soil. Don't worry too much about positioning the seeds perfectly, but placing them flat and covering them with soil can cause them to rot.
They also prefer a warm soil ~+20C. Heat mats or placing the seed trays on top of the refrigerator will accomplish this.
