Growing Tips:

Plant every 3 weeks for continual harvest. When central stem is 6" pinch off the top. Thin to strongest plants. Add mulch at base. If transplanting, harden off. Add row cover, if needed. Harvest leaves and flowers regularly to promote growth. 

It is key that your new starts be hardened off.  This is a process that requires taking them outside during the day, for a period of time, before they are planted. This acclimates your seedlings to the outside world, meaning the elements like the wind and sun. We do it for several weeks to a month as this strengthens their stems and overall plant structure. 

  • Start for a short period of time initially, then graduate to more time each day
  • One week minimum is recommended
  • Bring them inside in the early evening and overnight
  • Keep an eye on them and constantly water them. Make sure they have not blown over.
