Planting & Harvesting

Seed Depth: 1/2″ (13mm)

Plant Space: 18″ (46cm)

Row Space: 24″ (61cm)

Sprouts In: 5-10 days

Sow in rich, moist soil 4-6 weeks before last spring frost. Time your plantings to mature while weather is cool, usually late spring or early fall. Start indoors six weeks before last spring frost date. Transplant outdoors two weeks before last frost. Sow in midsummer for a fall crop, or late fall in mild climates. Feed monthly with compost tea or vegetable fertilizer to maintain vigorous growth.

Cut central head well before it develops flowers. Side shoots will continue to form after main head is harvested.
