Sow right away. First nick the seeds carefully with a file or nail. Slow germinator -- up to a year or more. Start seeds in layers of moist sand in shade. Check regularly in spring, and plant out to a pot as soon as the root appears. The first year seeds produce a long root the next year they will produce leaves. Needs warm for 60 days then cool 60 days.
