Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after danger of all frost and transplant seedlings in early summer or sow seeds in fall and transplant seedlings in spring in a sunny location. When seedlings are 12-14" tall, dig an 8" deep trough in an east/west direction and transplant mounding the soil around the seedlings. Mulch around the base of green stems (every 40-50 days) to increase white area on stems.
