PACKET LABEL INSTRUCTIONS: Sow seed 3" apart or broadcast carefully in deep, well prepared bed for long, well shaped roots. Avoid excess nitrogen which causes hairy, forked roots. Cover the seed lightly with soil. Do not allow the soil to dry out or crust (in soils that crust easily - try incorporating sand in the garden bed); it may help to put shade cloth or burlap over the bed, checking daily until seedlings come up and then removing it. Germination can be slow; presoaking in warm water can help.
