Easy to Grow: 1. Set the crowns just below ground level.
2. Fertilize the area liberally with manure or garden fertilizer.
3. Keep the soil moist and free of weeds during the growing season. Remove the flower spikes as they appear.
Planting Instructions: Plant in early spring in any well-drained, fertile soil, in the sun. Space plants about 3 ft. apart. If planted too closely, they will be scrawny and more susceptible to disease. For best results do not harvest the first year and few the second year and following harvests will be bountiful for years to come. When harvesting, do not remove more than half of the stalks at any time so the roots will maintain their strength for the next season. To harvest, twist the stalk while pulling sideways and trim off the tops.
When to Plant Outdoors: Plant in the spring, after the ground warms to about 50º F.
