Planting Instructions for Salad King Endive Seeds

Salad King Endive is a cool season green (withstanding moderate frosts), which likes lots of even moisture and rich well drained soil. For Spring planting, you can plant Endive seeds 2-4 weeks before the last frost, and for Fall crops plant 2-3 months before expected first frost. For an early Endive crop in spring start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost, and transplant outdoors 2 weeks before last frost. To direct sow Heirloom Endive seeds outdoors, sprinkle seeds evenly and cover with ¼” of soil, in wide rows 18″ apart. Germination should occur in 5-15 days in soil 45-75°F. Thin to 8-12″ apart. Mulch will help retain moisture and suppress weeds for optimum growth. Can start harvesting outer leaves when big enough to use. When Salad King Endive plants are full grown, cut off at the base to harvest.

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
