Planting Instructions: Start indoors, 4 to 6 weeks prior to your last expected frost date. Plant at a depth of about ¼. They are ready for transplanting when 4 to 5 inches tall. Plant 18 to 24 inches apart in rows spaced 2 to 3 feet apart. You should avoid planting in an area that has been used for other plants in the Brassica family within the past three years.

They prefer rich, well-prepared soil and thrive in cool weather, require a lot of moisture in summer but can tolerate some shade. When sprouts are 1 to 1½ inches in diameter, harvest from the bottom of the stock upwards. Pinch back the growing tip in late summer to encourage the upper sprouts to develop.
