Cultivation: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Transplant in late spring/summer (soil temperatures at least above 60°F). Keep soil moist. Harvest leaves and stem tips at as soon as 30 days after transplanting. Grows well in open field and containers.
For best germination, seed should be stored at 41°F until planted.

Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: The lemon-mint flavor of young leaves and stems is delicious in tea drinks and brightens many dishes—noodles, fish, chicken, salads and soups.
