This packet sows up to seven 10" x 20" flats
Days to Emerge:
When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost, when soil temperature is at least 50°F, ideally 60°‒70°F. Successive Sowings: Every 2 weeks until 2 weeks before the first fall frost.
When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. Sow indoors any time of year, with indoor temperatures 60°–75°F. Successive Sowings: Every 2 weeks for a continual supply.
Special sowing instructions: Use a shallow container with 1”–2” of potting soil. Sow seeds in a single layer, and cover with 1/8”–1/4” of soil.
Harvesting: When seedlings emerge, the first pair of leaves to show are the cotyledons, which can look very different from the leaves that follow, called “true” leaves. Mustard baby greens are ready to harvest 25 to 30 days after sowing, when they have true leaves at 2”‒4”. Cool growing temperatures may slow germination and growth. Harvest by cutting just above the soil line.
