Growing Instructions:
Direct seed (recommended): Direct seed in spring through midsummer. Sow seeds 1/8- 1/4" deep, 1-2 seeds every inch, in rows that are 12-18" apart. There is no need to thin, as saltwort continues to grow even when sown thickly. Successive sowings ensures a continuous harvest. Full sun to partial shade.

Transplant: Tamp seeds into the soil mix or just barely cover with soil and moisten. Transplant seedlings outside when they are 3-4" high, spacing seedlings 4-6" apart in rows that are 18" apart.
