BOTANICAL NAME : Linum usitatissimum
Plant early in the season in any good garden soil that is well drained. A thick stand will discourage branching and give better fiber. Wider spacing will give more flowers and seeds. May be broadcast carefully into well-prepared soil and lightly raked in. It is often easier to broadcast seeds evenly if it is mixed with a quantity of sand, soil, or compost. Harvest seeds when pods are dry.
