Green Thumb Guide

Thrives in well draining soils. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system, then reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Sterile variety will not reseed and crowd out other plants.

These characteristics apply to the greater Sacramento area and nearby regions.
