Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, 3 to 5 weeks before last frost, and fall planting done around June or July. Plants can grow 6 to 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Maintain consistent moisture to prevent heads from cracking. Water on the sides of the plant and avoid wetting any part of the plant.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro twice a month.

Harvest Tips:

Cut heads with sharp knife at ground level.
