Sow and Plant
Sow direct into soil, and cover the seeded bed or furrow with a board to keep it moist. Germination often takes up to 2 weeks.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalized calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Thin seedlings to proper spacing when they are 4 inches tall. Mulch to deter weeds and keep soil moist.
Use a digging fork to loosen soil along outside of the planting before pulling roots. Can be left in the soil through winter in many areas.
