Note: Germination instructions are not on seed packets, follow the instructions below for starting seed.

Soak seeds in warm water for twenty-four hours before planting and keep the soil temperature at 75F or above.
Soil should be fertile and high in potash with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Sow 1/4" deep in flats 7-8 weeks before transplanting. Germination may take up to two weeks.
Transplant in a sunny location after last frost. Space 1-2 feet apart in rows 2 feet apart.
Row covers or plastic mulch will encourage early pod set. Okra is a tropical plant therefore requiring warm weather conditions. Keep moist and and fertilize well.
