Additional Information

CULTURE: Direct seed any time midspring through late summer. Sow seeds 1/2" apart, in rows 12" apart, covering 1/4". Thin to 4-6" apart.
If transplanting, sow 4-5 seeds per 1-2" cell container. However, bear in mind that claytonia does not tolerate having its roots damaged during transplanting. Thin to 2 plants per cell. In about 4-5 weeks, when roots have filled the cell, gently transplant out about 8" apart.
HARVEST: After the plant has branched, snip the heart-shaped leaf pairs as needed. The plants will re-grow readily for continuous harvest.
