Sugar Cane Seed Planting Information:

Sugar cane likes hot summers. Sugar cane should be planted in specific patterns and distances, and separated by rows. Plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds 2 weeks after last frost date and when soil has warmed up. Sugar cane needs warm soil to germinate. The seeds may rot if the soil is too cool. Soil temperature needs to be higher than 60 F. Plant the seeds in blocks of at least 3 rows in each direction as sugar cane is pollinated by the wind. Planting in blocks also protects stalks from damage from high winds. Plants can grow 3 to 8 ft tall.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

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

Water during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro. Side dress with 33-0-0 plant food.
