detailed seed-starting info below

Some sources say this is hardy only to zone 7, so I should consider myself lucky if my seedlings survive our zone 6 winters. So far, my first two attempts were unsuccessful, but I'll try them in troughs on my third attempt and see if they're happier.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
