Planting And Care

 

 

  • Water the newly planted seed every other day, just enough to moisten it.
  • Keep it moist until it grows a few inches above ground then pull back on watering
  • After the seedling starts growing vigorously on its own, it will need watering only once a week during the growing season and only enough to wet the roots
  • Gradually taper watering in the fall, and stop in the winter.
