  • Plant in an area with full sun and well draining soil.
  • Till down 6-12 inches of to loosen any compacted soil.
  • Incorporate 2-4 inches of compost or manure before seeding or add a balanced fertilizer.
  • Sow seeds directly into the garden 2-3 weeks prior to the last expected frost in the spring.
  • Tatsoi likes cool weather, but spring frost may make it bolt, so think of also starting seeds indoors six weeks before the last frost and then transplanting outdoors.
  • Thin the plants to at least 6 inches apart once they are 2-4 inches tall.
  • Water 1 inch per week and add a layer of mulch to retain moisture.
