Chicory is a very versatile plant that is equally cherished as a flower and as an herb. Chicory seeds can be planted in the most challenging of conditions, and actually tend to thrive in less-than-ideal soil. Direct sow outdoors 2-3 weeks before the final frost date of the Spring, or as soon as the soil is workable. Sow Chicory seeds 6-10 inches apart in rows that are 2-3 feet distant. Seeds should be planted to a depth of 1/4 inch. Seedlings will emerge in approximately 14-21 days. Relatively slow to establish compared to other grains or forage seed however, once established it is highly preferred by deer as well as turkey.
This seed is a perennial.
