Planting Instructions: Plant as early in the spring as the ground can be worked. Successive sowings into mid-summer will provide a fresh supply through winter.

Loosen soil to a depth of 18 inches. Cover the seeds with ¼ to ½ inch of soil in rows two feet apart. When the plants are well established, thin to four to six inches apart.

The root flavor improves with frost and they can be left in the ground during the winter. Mulch with straw and harvest as needed.
