Planting & Care

Soil & Water:Plant prefers full sun and regular watering. Soil can be regular or even poor garden soil.

Planting & Growing: Sow the seed in the early spring. The seed is a cold-soil germinator. If you are not planting in the early spring, or garden in a warmer climate and warm soil, then it is best to pre-treat the seeds in moist medium in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for 2 weeks before sowing warm.Tap-rooted plants are best sown in-situ, in the garden bed. These large plants are best spaced at least 2 feet apart.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvesting of root should be done from the second year onward.
