Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Or start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Transplant when it has 6-7 true leaves. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. When plant reaches 24" tall, pinch back to promote lateral branching and a continuous harvest of young shoots and leaves.
