Days to Emerge:
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost, when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°‒70°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 2 weeks before the first fall frost. Mild Climates: Also sow in fall for winter harvest.
When to start inside: Any time; grow on a sunny windowsill or under grow lights.
Special sowing instructions: Light aids germination; sow shallowly at 1/8". Soil temperatures over 80ºF hinder germination; see inside packet for tips.
Harvesting: Harvest individual leaves at 2"–4" tall for a continual supply. If you wish to harvest mature heads, cut off at 2" above ground level as soon as possible after head forms; new leaves will grow from the center. The earlier the harvest, the more tender the crop.
