If you want tall plants with full-sized leaves to harvest all at once space the seedlings 15 inches apart. For…
We offer these in sets of three cuttings. Each cutting has several nodes from which leaves or roots will sprout. Cuttings should be put in pots in good potting soil (with half of the nodes below the soil and half above) and kept moist and in the shade to develop roots for a couple of months before planting out in the garden.
