Okra Clemson Spineless 50 seeds
Okra Clemson Spineless produces high quality, tapered 6 inches long pods.
Sow the seeds in late March - April indoors in compost in small pots. Germination takes 10 - 14 days.
As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out. Transplant the seedlings into individual small pots, later on they might need to be repotted if growing quickly and large. Make sure the leaves do not overlap. Temperature during this stage should be 17 - 25 Celsius. Plant outside in June leaving about 60 cm between the plants, or keep in the greenhouse or polytunnel for best production. Use fertile, well draining soil.
Keep watering in dry spells, especially when flowering and when the fruits are setting.
Okra is not hard to grow but need warm weather, in general okra needs the same growing conditions as tomatoes.
