Planting Directions: Direct sow in spring after frost danger has passed and soil temperature is a minimum of 60°, 70° is optimum. Plant 1”to 2” deep, 4-6” apart. Plant in full sun. Plant in moderately fertile soil. Keep soil moist until seed germinates, after that water moderately and regularly until harvest. Germination usually takes 7 to 14 days when properly tended. After each picking water deep to prolong production. Plant several plantings in 3 week intervals to prolong the harvest period.
