Cultivation: Prefers cool and mild temperatures. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring. If growing as an annual, sow every 2-3 weeks for continuous harvest. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Every 3-4 years, divide plants in spring to renew. Choose male plants (those without flowers) for division to avoid reseeding problem. Pick young, tender leaves when plant is just 4-5" tall. Harvest cut-and-come-again crops throughout the growing season. The plant develops a flower in the early fall just before it dies back for winter. Removing this flower encourages a larger harvest of leaves the following spring and reduces re-seeding.
