MaryE: I haven't grown them to sell, since they take so long, and the seeds are fairly expensive and don't always germinate. However, I have a friend that grows them outdoors every year, so I start some for her. I don't think we could start these outdoors. They need to be fairly well developed before we put them out, and that would be after June 1 when the frost danger is past. Using a coldframe is one way to keep them going, and that's more or less what your suggestion of plexiglass suggestion does.
