When to start?

  • after last frost if starting outside.

Step Two: Starting

Where to start and how to sow?

  • Start indoors: 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Because flax roots are sensitive, you should transplant seedlings into larger containers to avoid them becoming root-bound.
  • Direct sow: Lightly rake the soil gently to bury seeds with a half-inch of soil. Tamp down the seeds to ensure they make direct contact with the soil. Finely spray with water thoroughly; this will provide proper moisture while not drowning the seeds. Continue to water regularly. Seeds will germinate in about 10 days

Step Three: Growing

How to keep happy?

  • Likes slightly acidic to neutral soil that is fertile and well-drained. Sandy or loamy soil is best. If soil is poor, prepare the site by mixing in a lot of organic matter such as compost or manure. Likes to be moist but not water logged.
