Growing Instructions:
Note from Ryan.... Shiso seeds degrade rather quickly as far as seeds go and should be stored in the freezer until they're ready to plant to prevent this. Being out the freezer during shipping is fine, but the more time in the cold, the better. Please be weary of sellers who are selling seeds from as far back as 2018. These seeds are from 2020 and we wouldn't think of selling Shiso seeds older than that. Sow in spring after the last frost. The shiso seeds will germinate rapidly at 68 degrees or even a little cooler. Plant 1-2 seeds per inch, in rows 18" apart. Sow seeds shallowly or cover lightly, as light is required for germination. Can grow somewhat thickly, or thin to 6-12" apart.
