Planting and care
Seeds can direct sown outdoors in the fall once the last frost has passed, or started earlier indoors for improved germination rates and stability for young plants.
Burdock is easy to grow. It grows readily in the wild, without day human assistance. The attention you provide to it in your garden, will promote bigger, deeper roots, and more plant and seed to harvest. Burdock likes full sun, but will tolerate partial shade.
