Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant around last frost. Plant in good soil in full sun to partial shade. Plants will grow to 30" high. Ready for harvest when beads of initial shoots are about 1 mm in size. Continue cutting shoots all season long; don't miss more than a couple of days. Plant again 12-14 weeks before first fall frost for a terrific autumn treat.
