Best Answer

You will need about a dozen seeds to plant. Not all will grow, and you will want to select the strongest seedlings, keeping at least two competing vines as a protection against loss to pests.

Plant the seeds in a shallow trench a few feet long (and no more than 4 inches deep). You can create a small mound where drainage is a problem. Water lightly to keep the seeds moist. Plant after the last frost of the year.
