Gardeners' Notes:

Positive tiffanya On Aug 27, 2005, tiffanya from Sumner, WA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Have planted it two years in a row, both from Ed Hume seeds. First year, they were in the North side of the garden and did very well next to the tomato plants. This past year they were on the South side near the peppers and did very poorly. Soil mix was about the same both years (topsoil - manure mix). Western Washington, Zone 8A.
