Red amaranth seeds 100 gm
Amaranth is responsive to nitrogen and phosphorous. Plants grown in average garden soil will be four-feet to six-feet tall, while those grown in rich soil or compost may reach over eight feet. Optimum soil is a well-drained loam but both plants will do well in all but poorly aerated clay soils.
Amaranth are grown from seed. Amaranth seeds can be directly seeded into your flower garden, or started indoors for transplanting later. Note, Amaranth plants are susceptible to frost. Amaranth prefers warm weather. If planting outdoors, sow Amaranth seeds after the soil has begun to warm in the spring.
We recommend an indoor start, six to eight weeks before the last frost in your area.
Sow seeds early in the season and cover lightly with soil. Space seeds or seedlings 10-12″ apart. They will tolerate a little crowding, and look good in clumps or groups.
