Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information


CULTURE: To hasten the seeds' slow germination, soak in water for a day prior to sowing. Soaking is not necessary, but it is recommended. Tetragonia is frost sensitive, so delay sowing until after the last spring frost. Sow seeds directly, 8" apart, covering 1/2". The plant will tolerate hot weather.
Prevent disease with crop rotation and sanitation.
About a month after sowing, after the onset of branching, harvest by pinching off the leaf tips. This encourages more branching, and the plants will continue to grow and produce harvestable foliage.
SEEDS/LB..: 5,600 seeds.
100 seeds, sows 75'.
