Red Leaf Amaranth
(Amaranthus spp.); Black seed; Minimum 1 gram
Due to the tiny nature of the seeds, start indoors in individual pots a week or so before planting or broadcast lightly into a raked, well-weeded seed bed. Intitial growth is slow. Plants benefit from reduced weed pressure as germination.
Amaranth is a prolific self-seeder; keep this in mind when selecting planting location.
