Best in full sun but prefers cool weather; plants tend to bolt if stressed for moisture or nutrition. Space about 18” apart and add organic fertilizer at planting time; can be direct-sown or from transplants. Pests can include aphids, whitefly & cabbage moths – grow under row cover for best protection.Care
