Growing Calendar for Okra Seeds - French Quarter
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Grow this new and exciting patio variety of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus). Other varieties requires an indoor environment but not French Quarter which has been bred to withstand a south-facing and sheltered position outdoors. Every plant produces big attractive blooms that give way to attractive pinky-red seed pods. Pleasing to the eye and big in flavour.
How to sow:
Soak seeds in warm water for a couple of hours before sowing to soften the seed coat and encourage quick germination.
Sow seeds 1cm (1/2 in) deep in clean trays or individual 9cm pots filled with moist, firm compost indoors from mid-winter to April. Keep them in an ambient temperature of 16°C (61°F) until transplanting in bigger pots. Transplant when the seedlings are around 10-15cm (4-6in) high. Keep soil moist at all times.
The seeds were rather expensive but this second pack of seeds have all germinated! 100% viability which is great. I have planted all of them in my green house and only time will tell how they thrive. Clean packing and prompt delivery.
5 seeds in the packet but one seed produced a stunted deformed plant. The others are all healthy.
Only 5 seeds in packet, very costly. However all have germinated and growing nicely. Fingers crossed I get a good crop of okra from them
