Culinary note: The leaves are very nutritious, similar to spinach and the seeds can be treated as grain, amaranthus flour is common. The leaves also make nice salad greens. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing
Sow February to March onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and lightly cover the seed with fine grade vermiculite. Place the seed container in a warm place at a daytime temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) and allow this to be reduced slightly overnight to aid germination. Germination usually takes 3-15 days. Do not exclude light at any stage as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12 inches) apart.
