  • Wait until the soil reaches 50 degrees before planting. Plant seeds ½ inch deep and 1-2 inches apart.
  • Make sure soil remains moist for germination. In zones with low moisture and rainfall, soak the seeds for 24 hours before planting.
  • Early crop can be planted in March/April, and late crop anytime from June to September.
  • Successive plantings are also possible as long as the weather doesn’t exceed 75 degrees F. Space plantings about 20 days apart.
  • Winter crops are a definite possibility in Zone 9 and above.
