SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Direct seed in spring after the last frost. Sow seeds shallowly, 30 seeds per foot in rows 18" apart. There is no need to thin when the seeds are direct seeded.
Transplant: Seeds require some light to germinate, so sow shallowly. Use individual plug containers
and plant several seeds in each plug. Thin, if necessary, to 2 or 3 plants per plug. Transplant plugs into the field at a 6" spacing in rows 18" apart.


Fertile soil. Keep well watered.




HARVEST: Leaves and stalks may be harvested once the plants have become established and before flowering occurs. Cut the plants 3/4 way down the stems, so that they can continue growing.
