Start spring seedlings indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost. Transplant when 3” tall and bury stem 1” deeper than they were in your pots. When transplanting, enrich soil with a little blood and bone meal. Once main head is cut, harvest side shoots for several weeks. Leaves are GREAT for Juicing!
