How to Grow
65 seed/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed and cover with a fine sifting of soil. Grow as a short-term transplant to avoid bolting. Sequentially sow seeds for a steady supply of transplants through the summer. Seed generally germinates in 5-7 days. Transplant seedlings 10-12 days later, at least 30 cm apart. Leaves can be used 25-30 days after transplanting.
