FERTILITY: Apply moderate amounts of nitrogen and higher amounts of phosphorus and potash. Apply manure the previous fall as spring applications can cause mis-formed roots. GERMINATION: 5-7 days at 50-65F/10-18C. Prefers cool soil to germinate. SPACING: Sow seeds 1cm/1/2" apart and 6mm/1/4" deep in rows 16-32" apart. Thin to 3cm/1 1/2" apart.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
