Cultivation: Prepare fertile, deeply dug, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring or fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Thin by cutting tops to avoid disturbing remaining roots. Mulch to keep soil cool, conserve moisture and to keep exposed "shoulders" from turning green and bitter. Another option is to hill soil over the shoulders. Root quality is best when soil temperatures are 60F to 70F.
