Suggested Planting Requirements: Sorrel can be grown as a baby green or full-grown green. You can start seed inside or in starter pots and transplant out when you are ready. By transplanting out you can reduce competition with weeds. You may also direct sow. Seeds are very small and need light for germination. For the best germination, cover seeds lightly with a very thin later of finely sifted soil.
Growing Recommendations: If direct sowing you can plant seeds in freshly worked soil. The top 1″ of soil should be soft and finely raked. For best germination, cover seeds with finely sifted soil or potting mix and then press down gently to keep the tiny seeds in place. Seeds must stay moist to terminate. When seeds have germinated and are about 2″ tall then them to at least 6″ apart to produce happy healthy plants. If you are transplanting Sorel, simply transplant with a minimum spacing of 6″ in a full sun spot in the garden during mild weather and a dappled shade spot during hot weather.
