Planting Directions: Plant in spring as early as the ground can be worked and soil temperature reaches 40 degrees minimum, optimum 72 degrees. Plant in rich, fertile soil. Sow in Spring for a Fall harvest. Sow seed 1/4” deep, at 2-4” intervals in rows spaced 24” apart. Thin seedlings to 12-18” apart. As plants grow up to 6’ it may be necessary to provide support at maturity. Plants grouped in a small block tend to be self supporting. Harvest by cutting low at base, use the edible leaves and allow the stock to air dry. When thoroughly dried cut to desired length and preserve with varnish or wax for an attractive appearance.
