Growing Instructions

Very easy to grow. Direct sow in the spring after threat of frost has passed in a sunny, well-drained spot. Thin seedlings to 6-10 inches apart. Amaranth tolerates fair fertility and dry conditions, but more fertility and moderate water will yield lush and tall plants. Plant height varies with the amount of fertility in the soil. Taller plants may require a bit a staking to keep them from flopping over.
