Cultivation advice

Sowing

Sow 0-0,5 cm deep, prefereably in the autumn. The seeds can sometimes be slow to sprout. Early spring sowing or a few weeks of cold treatment in the fridge can make the seeds wake. When the plant is big enough it can be carefully divided into more plants. 

Spacing

Keep 20 cm between plants and 50 cm between rows. The plants can spread out quite a bit! 

Harvest

Harvest the leaves continually. This can be done as soon as the plant is big enough, most likely the second year. The leaves are tastiest in the beginning of the season. 

Seed

1 g is about 500 seeds.
A portion contains about 50 seeds.
