Start seeds in flats or pots early in Spring or in late Summer-mid-July onward for fall. Transplant seedlings 15" apart. If direct seeding, avoid soil crusting, which will make it hard for seedlings to emerge. Long-standing, so work in plenty of compost and lime if needed for long, steady growth. Winter survival will be improved by mulching and a fall dose of seaweed meal, ashes, or other potash source. Matures in 8-9 weeks. Overwintered shoots are sweet and choice.
