SCIENTIFIC NAME:Arctium lappa
CULTURE:Direct seed. Burdock requires a deep, 1-2′, well-drained soil to produce quality roots. Sow anytime in spring, about 2″ apart, 3/4″ deep, in rows 24″ apart. Thin to 2-3″ apart.
HARVEST:Fall through early spring. A raised bed with removable sides enables harvesting from the side, which results in fewer broken roots.
STORAGE:Optimum storage at 32°F (0°C) and 95% relative humidity.
