Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly outdoors every 2 weeks from spring to early summer and late summer to fall. May overwinter outdoors in mild winter climates.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves as needed when they are a usable size. Chicory plants harvested after a few frosts are sweeter than their spring counterparts.
