Plant salsify as soon as the ground can be worked in your area. Choose a fertile, well drained soil and work in to 10 inches deep a bushels or two of dried manure per 20 foot row. Sow the seeds one-half inch deep and cover lightly with soil. They are slow growers so don't get discouraged. Once up, thin to 2 to 4 inches apart and keep well weeded. You should be able to harvest some roots this fall. In the South they are perennials, so don't be surprised if you see new shoots next spring.
