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.
