How to Plant CARAWAY Seeds

Direct sow into prepared seed beds in spring or fall, 1-2 seeds per inch, ¼ inch deep, in rows 12 inches apart. Germination is in 10-20 days. Thin to 6-8 inches apart.
Comments: Full Sun, regular water. First year plants look like carrots, reaching 8 inches tall, sending down a deep taproot. Second season, umbels of white or pink flowers appear on 2-3 foot stems. Often intercropped with beans or peas. Harvest leaves as needed. Harvest seeds after flower heads have died and seeds have formed. Cut stems, tie together, hang upside down with a container underneath to catch falling seeds.
