Endive Seed Planting Information:

Endive is a curly leaf plant and is very easy to grow. It is very hardy and is frost resistant. It does well even in rainy regions. Endive does not do well in very hot weather. You can have successive plantings throughout the year. In the spring, plant seeds 4 weeks before last frost date. Plant in August for fall harvest. Endive seeds are usually planted directly in the garden. Plant your seeds as soon as the soil can be worked. Plants grow 3 - 9" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.

Fertilizer Requirements:

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

Harvest Tips:

You can cut outer leaves as you need them if you want the plant to produce more leaves, or you can cut the entire plant at ground level.
