Sorry for the slow response, but here are my notations:
On January 27, 2015 Seeds sown
(W/S - Warm 3 wks, then move outdoors.)
On May 12, 2015 Seeds germinated
(Est. germination date - seedlings observed 2015-05-24.)
I sowed my seeds on a vermiculite base in a sealed container and kept them at room temp for several weeks. After that I moved the container outdoors (out of direct sunlight) and just allowed fluctuating outdoor temps to guide the sprouting sequence.
Hope this helps.
