How do i grow bok choy?

Start your plants indoors in mid-late winter. Use a seedling tray and plant one seed per cell, about 1/4" deep and then cover lightly with soil. Keep soil moist but not wet, and thin any extra seedlings so that there is just one seedling per cell if extra has germinated. Seeds will germinate quickly and you can start hardening off after 2 weeks.

Direct sow your seeds as early as February at a spacing of 4 per square-foot. Make sure to keep them covered until the weather is consistently above freezing, or if you prefer, direct sow from March-May without protection.
