Special Directions For Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow seeds directly into the garden in early spring through mid spring and again in the fall. Cover seeds with 1/8 inch fine soil firmed down.

SPACING: Space rows 18-24 inches apart depending upon available space.

THINNING: Thin to 16-18 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION: 5 to 10 days. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Pak Choi grows best in the cooler parts of the growing season in moist rich soil. Protect from insects with cheesecloth or agricultural fabric. Cut outer stalks as plants grow or cut entire plant at the base. Center stalk can also be harvested to help force growth to outer leaves.
