Siru Keerai- 10 Grams- 1000 seeds approx.
Planting And Care:
- Successive sowings will provide greens over a long period
- The leaves have a sweet, tangy flavour and are best cooked, raw leaves should not be eaten very often, as they are high in nitrates and oxalic acid
- Well, there really isn t much to it
- Amaranth seed is very fine
- If you grow leaf amaranth you want a large number of plants because you will likely harvest the whole plant while it is still young
- There is no point starting it in punnets
- Thinly sprinkle the seed on the ground and rake it in
- Like all fast growing leafy greens amaranth loves rich soil with steady moisture and a good supply of nutrients, especially nitrogen
- But it isn t as fussed as spinach or silverbeet would be
- Amaranth is much hardier
- It can cope with heat and dry conditions a lot better than any other leafy green
- If you are frustrated with trying to grow tasty, leafy greens in the tropic, amaranth is a plant you should start growing today
- Once established, amaranth needs little care
- It is more tolerant of drought than most other leafy vegetable and will tolerate a wider range of soils than other grain crops
Green Amaranth Care:
- 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
