Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Can be sown by broadcasting and thinned during growth. Keep soil moist. Do not use nitrogen fertilizer, as it will accumulate excess nitrates. The leaves and stems are best when harvested young.
