Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late summer/early fall in a sunny location and year round for larger leaves and thicker stems. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest main stalk when 2-3 flowers are open. After cutting the top, the plant branches freely for an extended harvest. New stem shoots will be smaller.
