Outside Sowing: Early to mid-spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55 degrees F. Sow 1-3 seeds per inch, thin to 2-6” apart. The larger the bulb size the more space.

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots ¼ ” deep, ¼-½ ”  apart. Provide 65-75 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant seedlings out mid/late spring, 2-6” apart. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement).

Harvest: Stop watering a week before harvesting. Pull out when tops fall over and skin develops. Cure them by drying them until the neck is dry, out of direct sunlight, in a warm area, and in single layer so air can circulate around them.

Tips: Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water, 1” per week for optimum growth.
