Until blossoming season, frequent but shallow cultivation should be given.Deep cultivation after the plants show bloom is very apt to ruin the crop. Do not disturb plants when covered with dew. One pound will plant 100 feet of drill. Allow 50 foot row per person. To afford a regular succession of crops throughout the season, plant every two weeks after the first planting until midsummer.
