Grows best in moderately fertile soil. Can be started indoors 8 weeks before last frost; sow seed 1/4" deep. Space plants 8" to 10" apart. Plant every 2 weeks in spring and again in late summer, early fall. Less bitter if grown in cool weather of spring or fall. Havest as soon as the outer leaves are of usable size. Either cut off the outer leaves or cut the entire plant to soil level and you will be able to harvest again in several weeks. Approximately 400 seeds per gram or 11000 per ounce.
