What are the pros? Fast germinator
What are the cons? Bolts in winter?
I started a single row about 1" apart in a box container with a reservoir and casters on 8/11. Soil was a mixture of roughly 75% compost and manure with about 25% peat moss. Seeds germinated in 2 days! They were quickly attacked by slugs and caterpillars. Survivors made it to the cool weather and escape from pests. They started to bulb but didn't get there before a hard freeze of 20 degrees on January 20th somehow induced them to bolt? Seems illogical but that's what appears to have happened. In any case, they were at 120 plus days and hadn't bulbed. My guess is that there was insufficient sun on my deck and it hindered growth. The instructions recommend autumn start but I will try again in early spring and with more direct sunlight.
