Growing Instructions:
Okra loves heat, so gardeners with short growing seasons may need to start their seeds indoors. Plan to set them out 3-4 weeks after the last frost. Before planting the seeds, soak them overnight to encourage faster germination. Plant 2-3 seeds in one peat pot and keep them at 80-90° until germination. A plant heat mat can help achieve this and is a wonderful tool for any gardener to have. Thin to the strongest plant by cutting off the weaker seedlings. When the air temp gets into the 60s, plant the seedlings in full sun 12-15" apart in rows 3 feet apart. For direct sowing in warmer climates, sow the seeds 3/4" deep and later thin the plants to 12-15" apart. When the seedlings reach a height of 4", apply much to conserve water and control weeds. Keep plants moist during dry weather.
