How To Grow 50 seeds/gram Plants can yield for 20 years. Select a sunny site with well drained soil and work in large amounts of composted manure 12" deep. A soil pH in the range of 6.5 to 7.5 is ideal. Soak seeds in water for 2 days. Sow 2.5 cm (1") deep and 12.5 cm (5") apart in rows 45 to 60 cm (18-24") apart. Thin the seedlings to 15 cm (6") apart when they are 7.5 cm (3") tall. During mid-spring in the second year, transplant the 1 year old roots 45 cm (18") apart in rows 1 m (40") apart. It is best to wait until the third year after sowing to take a regular harvest. Each spring, mulch established plants with compost and work in large amounts of composted manure 30 cm (12") deep. Feed with a general-purpose vegetable fertilizer such as granular 4-12- 8 or soluble 20-20-20.
