Seeding: Seeds should be planted 8 mm deep and germinate in 7-12 days.

Indoors: Early crop; Start 4-6 weeks before last frost sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of the suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before the last frost.

Late crop: Sow in late spring to transplant out for fall crops.

Sowing Outdoors: In spring when the soil temperature reaches at least 15 C. Sow 2-3 seeds  60-90 cm. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in early summer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

Harvest If the heads feel solid by pushing on them lightly they are ready to harvest. Harvest as soon as possible for early varieties to prevent splitting.

Tips: A heavy feeder. Needs to grow in fertile soil, rich in organic matter. Amend with compost if the soil is not fertile. Provide adequate, even moisture for optimum growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.
