In climates where frost is unlikely after March, sow directly outdoors in the garden, barely covering with 1/8" soil. In 4 - 6 weeks, thin to 18-24" apart.
In colder areas, sow seeds indoors in flats from early April to late May. When seedlings show first true leaves, transplant 3" apart into flats, cold frames, or individual pots. At 7-8" tall, transplant into garden, 18-24" apart.
Water well and deeply during hot weather. A light frost improves flavor. To encourage the growth of sprouts, when sprouts start forming around stem, pinch or cut off the growing tip to stop vertical growth.
