Planting Instructions:
Amaranth germinates when the soil temperature is at least 70°, so gardeners in cool climates will want to start their seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting. Direct sow seeds after the last spring frost. Sow thinly at 1/4" deep in rows 16-18" apart. Thin to the strongest seedling per 10-12" apart. Some gardeners choose a closer spacing if only growing to harvest the greens. Prefers full sun and well drained soil. Once established, will tolerate drought, but the greens will be more tender if the soil is kept moist.
