Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow indoors from March to May or September to October, thinly in pots or trays of seed compost; do not cover as light is needed for germination. Keep at a temperature of 5-10oC (41-50oF). Germination can be slow and erratic. When large enough transplant to further trays or pots of compost. Gradually harden off before planting out to final position the following spring spacing 60cm (24in) apart. Protect young plants from frost until established.
Harvest: August to October. Dig up the plant in early autumn, cut part of the roots off and replant the plant, it will continue to grow. Cut the root into 20cm (8in) pieces and dry for later use.
