  • Planting Instructions

    When to Plant:

    • Amaranth can be planted inside or outside in the Spring, but we’d recommend starting the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before your last frost. If you decide to plant outside, wait until the soil is warm.

    How to Grow:

    • Amaranth needs full sun and can be grown in almost any well-drained soil besides dense clay.
    • Plant your seeds about 10-12 inches apart and cover lightly with soil.
    • They will germinate within 3-4 days if the temperatures are between 60-90 degrees F.
    • When moving your seeds outside, sow them 1.5 to 2 feet apart.
    • Amaranth is drought and heat resistant, so it is only necessary to water once or twice a week during dry periods.
    • For taller plants, add fertilizer once or twice a year or add compost. Amaranth grows between 4 and 6 feet tall but with particularly rich soil with plenty of nitrogen and phosphorous, the plants can get to around 8 feet!

    How to Harvest:

    • Amaranth will flower until the first hard frost, so there will be plenty of seeds to harvest!
    • Seeds from the flowers are usually ready for harvest after 3 months.
    • To harvest, shake the flower heads and catch the falling seeds.
